The teachers at Manch Elementary met on February 25 to participate in a training on assisting students with developing, monitoring, and achieving their personal and academic goals. This training, called Aligning Academics, was taken as part of the school's three year implementation of The Leader In Me framework. Manch Elementary school is in their second year of implementation, and is moving towards utilizing the framework to accelerate student learning. Many strategies were discussed, but the most powerful strategy shared was that of the Leadership Notebook. The teachers are excited to begin creating these notebooks with their students!
