Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention. Out of necessity, Northside Elementary School revamped their entire model of staff growth and information sharing. They have traded mandatory faculty meetings for OPTIONAL learning opportunities! And the staff love it! Teacher leaders gather data from the entire faculty about their learning needs, plan monthly professional learning opportunities, and share best practices with each other. The new approach has empowered the staff to take on unique leadership roles and freed Principal Haley Beavert to support those most in need.
