The American Federation of Teachers recently invited the NTA to send teachers to attend a conference in Houston. NTA President Art Plichta, NTC Coordinator Ann Marie Healey, NTA Board of Directors Stacy Moran and Sue Warren attended. The conference titled: “Connecting the Dots 2.0: Collaboratively Moving from a Sorting System to a Learning System” dealt with trying to improve teaching and student achievement within the new reality of Common Core State Standards, and High Stakes Evaluations. Poughkeepsie teachers also attended with their new superintendent .
Speakers Randi Weingarten, Charlotte Danielson, Linda Darling-Hammond and Ron Ferguson spoke of state tests being very poor measures of student achievement or teacher effectiveness and there needs to be a basket of evidence for appropriate appraisal that represents what is happening in the classroom.
The key to successful schools from the international perspective is collaboration, professional development and training. It was said more than once, that “we can’t fire our way to Finland.”
Beautiful weather, nice company and great food!
The Welcome Back Bash at Billy Joes was a lot of fun for all who attended. We raised about $500 for the Armory.
Please remember to check your email regularly.
