Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
“It is the New Year again. May all the goodness that comes with a fresh start follow you wherever you go and whatever you do, as you enjoy the new blessings and fresh abundance of the New Year.”
“This is the year I will be stronger, braver, kinder, and unstoppable. This year I will be FIERCE.”
Thank you to all who were able to stop in and visit STC during our December Open House. Congratulations to Tracy Tone from Union Pleasant Elementary School. Tracy won the door prize.
ADVOCACY - We aren’t going to say “Now is the time to start advocating for Teacher Centers as the new State budget is being prepared” because advocacy is (and should be) a continuous, year-long process. One of the ways we, at the Southtown Teachers’ Center, do that is to send copies of our Newsletters to all of our stakeholders. The Far West Teacher Center Network, to which the STC belongs, holds monthly meetings. Our next meeting in early February is scheduled to be held at the NYSUT Field Office in Williamsville. The main topic of discussion will be ADVOCACY. Stay tuned!
Please check out our course offering list, especially if you are seeking tenure. “Creating the Learning Environment and 21st Century Thinking” replaces the Tenure required DOL 1 and 5.
We are already looking for courses to run during the summer. If you are interested in teaching a course, or if there is a course you would like to have offered, please let us know.
