First we’d like to welcome everyone back! We hope you had a restful winter break!
Second, the professional development schedule for the 2nd semester is now online. Please visit http://www.pps.k12.va.us/uploadedFiles/Teacher_and_Staff/Staff%20Development%20Guide%20Second%20Semester.pdf and check that out. Don’t forget to RSVP to Mrs. West if you plan on attending a workshop.
Third, I have information for another summer institute. The Institute of International Education and the Korea Foundation have posted their application for the 2009 Korean Studies Workshop for American Educators. This is the workshop I attended this past summer. You must be a secondary social studies teacher, so only those who teach grades 6-12 are eligible. It was a wonderful workshop and I enjoyed it immensely. It is a fully funded trip-I only needed spending money. For further information and to access the application, check out http://www.iie.org//Admin/Website/WPreview.cfm?CWID=768. And if you have any questions about the trip, please don’t hesitate to ask! I love to talk about my trip!
