New Professional Learning Partnership with Ribas Associates
Watch your inbox later this week for a schedule of professional learning workshops being offered by MESPA and Ribas Associates. These workshops will be of interest to you and your teachers. Remember that your teachers can register at the membership rate if you are a member. Workshops (both live and on-line) will be available in the following categories:
- Addressing the Social-Emotional Learning Needs of All Students
- Strengthening Collaborative Teacher Teams: A Key to Academic, Social and Emotional Success
- Developing Leadership Skills
Ribas Associates is a leading provider of professional development, consulting and publication services designed to improve educator effectiveness and student performance (http://www.ribasassociates.com/).
We are working to expand MESPA’s Leadership Coaching Program in the coming year. If you are interested in serving as a coach, please contact Rick Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are interested in receiving coaching, please contact Brenda Elmes (email@example.com).
Regional Principals’ Groups
We will be organizing low-cost regional groups for principals that will meet 6-8 times during the year (some groups may use a blended in-person/on-line approach). These groups of 8-12 principals from different districts will be facilitated by an experienced or retired principal. If you are interested in facilitating or participating in one of these groups, please contact Rick Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org).
