We had a great professional development workshop in RSU 18 today. Faculty from across the district gathered at Messalonskee Middle School for 6 sessions offering multiple talks and activities led by district staff and administrators. Presentations mainly focused on strategies for building positive relationships, ways to improve attendance and engagement, and effective methods for using technology to augment learning.
Two shorter sessions focused on wellness activities from yoga to financial health. Members of the RSU 18 faculty choir even took a few minutes to rehearse their music for the upcoming MHS Players production of Hunchback of Notre Dame. It was a great day for staff to reconnect and learn from one another.
