This certainly is an exciting time with the start of a new school year! It’s another opportunity to build relationships with students and truly make a difference in their world in ways we can’t even fully imagine. As an educator for 22 years, I have always loved the beginning of school—especially when I have the opportunity to have a fresh start. It’s a lot of work to get the ship ready to sail for the voyage ahead, but I truly enjoy it. Whether it involves creating the perfect lesson plans for an exciting new project, making curriculum tweaks to provide the latest great resources, or finding new ways to integrate teaching tools to make learning more interactive and fun, I find this hard work really satisfying.

Lunch and Learn Teacher Training
Something just as exciting this month will be the introduction of eight Lunch and Learn teacher training sessions focused on the MimioStudio software. These will provide another opportunity within the school day to discover how to start small and build upon what you already have. The training sessions will begin with a “Tour of MimioStudio,” where you’ll learn how to use simple tools right away to make an impact your classroom. Plus, you will earn a professional development certificate for each course!
The tour continues taking you through how to enrich any existing lessons you have with interactive content, as well as learning how to use any number of features in the MimioStudio software to create your own interactive lessons. What’s more, teachers who use Mimio tools in the classroom every day will teach the sessions.

As a classroom teacher, I’m not telling you anything new when I say that teachers never have enough time in the day to get things done—especially once the year gets rolling. Yet, with the passion instilled in our very nature, we tend to find ways to get things done when needed. There are so many tools, lessons, projects, and instructional strategies to help you achieve the curriculum goals you have. However, there’s only one resource that can make it all happen: YOU! I encourage you to challenge yourself this year and continue pushing yourself to find new ways to impact a child. Have a great start to the year!
