What an incredible start to the school year! I am filled with joy to see the excitement on the faces of students, parents and staff!
In this week’s message, I will share a few thoughts about CMP’s ongoing commitment to provide relevant Professional Growth opportunities for staff.
This summer, Teaching Assistants were given the opportunity to attend the Montessori Training Center’s week-long Montessori Overview. CMP will continue to offer monthly ‘Super Duper Saturdays’ for our T.A.s, as well.
At CMP’s annual network in-service on August 9th, over 400 staffpersons attended a variety of workshop sessions, in addition to presentations by renown speaker and therapist, Dr. Jane Nelsen (“Positive Discipline in the Classroom”).
CMP staff are also participating in ongoing MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) conferences, which address academics, behavior and social emotional learning.
Several school leaders recently registered for the “ACSA Equity Institute,” which will be held in San Jose over the coming months. This 4-weekend Program is designed to build cultural proficiency capacity in order to ‘lead for equity.’
These are just a few of the Staff Development opportunities CMP provides.
Training and equipping our staff is a priority, as we strive to best serve you, your children, and our community.
Thanks, as always, for your support!
