Teacher effectiveness takes center stage in 2014
Nashwauk-Keewatin and Greenway teachers lead the way
 
Nashwauk-Keewatin and Greenway School Districts continue leading the efforts in teacher effectiveness training by implementing the Marzano Model of Effective Instruction. Teachers, supported by union leadership, have embarked on this exciting journey originally prompted by a Minnesota legislative mandate regarding implementing a teaching evaluation system required by the 2014-2015 school year. This mandate has provided the impetus in bringing teacher teams together around a professional growth model rather than strictly evaluation. Teachers and administration have partnered together in trainings facilitated by Learning Sciences International based out of St. Cloud, Minnesota, as well as through professional learning community time on Wednesday early-out days. Teachers and staff have done the real work, developing growth plans and building momentum that regularly brings teacher teams together across both school districts, and now regionally to dialogue about best practices. A huge thank you to all our teachers for their leadership throughout this initiative. Throughout this effort, the direct impact will be continuous improvement in teaching and learning that will directly benefit the students of Nashwauk-Keewatin and Greenway school districts, and the IASC region.
