Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne

Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne- January 2015

“We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them.”
Hillary DePiano

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Check out our course offering list. Among them are three interesting courses to enhance your Professional Learning. They are: “Welcome to the Technology Buffet” which starts January 20th, “Effective Behavioral Approaches” which starts in February, and a newly developed course titled “Creating the Learning Environment”. This course will increase your toolbox of strategies. The Districts will accept this course in lieu of DOL 1 and 5.

Check out the Far West courses offered free of charge.

We have two puzzle books we are promoting in January. “Visual thinking is a powerful element that defines the way in which we process all sorts of information.” Visual Thinking Puzzles by Michael A. DiSpezio. “When we think critically we are engaging in intellectual strategies to probe the basic nature of a problem, situation, or puzzle. Everyone has these skills and the puzzles in this book are designed to challenge, exercise, and stretch the way you interpret the world.” Critical Thinking Puzzles by Michael DiSpezio.
