I added a page to my blog. Even though I've been here awhile, I thought I'd add a profile page to help you know me a little better. I shared a little about my background, education and family.
We've had another super week at Wheelock!
On Tuesday we held another assembly to work through our matrix. Students saw skits about expected and unexpected behavior in the cafeteria, the rest rooms and on the bus. We hope by modeling for our students it will help them understand these important expectations that provide a solid foundation for learning.

Very proud of the third grade team. They collected so many donations for a school in Texas! Thank you to so many parents for your help with the donations and shipping!
This month our faculty was focusing on Part 1 of the Innovator's MIndset. Using a Padlet, the teachers recorded their responses to these questions: What does innovation mean to you? Can you give an example of something innovative you have seen or created yourself? How do you create an environment that fosters risk taking?
It was great to see their responses.
To model innovation and to support teacher's well-being, our faculty meeting provided our teachers with a fun activity. While discussing Innovator's Mindset, the teachers were decorating pumpkins in the image of their favorite book characters. These pumpkins will decorate our school and the activity provided a relaxing environment in which to discuss innovation. I wanted to take a risk and model something different for my teachers so they will feel comfortable trying new and different things with our students. A big thank you to the PTO for our pumpkins!
Thank you to Carrie Quinlan and Nancy Kufferman for a great Room Parent Tea. We so appreciate our room parents and all they do. Thank you to Mrs. Schiemer, our nurse, who works so hard to keep our students safe, for her great advice.
I hope everyone enjoys a great Columbus Day Weekend! We are looking forward to our Walk with Franklin on Wednesday. Don't forget to send sneakers with your student!
