|Snow Mountain Ranch at YMCA of the Rockies|
We are back for another school year here at West Leadership Academy!
Over the past week we didn't have any students. Instead, the teachers met for a professional development retreat at the YMCA of the Rockies!
Over the course of two days we participated in several workshops on various topics and also mapped out some logistical issues for the upcoming school year. The location was quite beautiful and serene so it was certainly a good place to spend a couple of days. Additionally, team and community building was a big focus so it was nice to let loose and spend time with fellow teachers and staff talking about non-school related things.
The more we get to know each other over the course of the year, the better able we will be to help each other and in turn help our students.
|Our own YESS classroom!|
On Friday we got back to the school and spent our day decorating our classroom and preparing for Monday's first day! After getting a room just for YESS students this year, I am certainly looking forward to offering a space where they can visit and receive help throughout the entire day and not just during certain periods. It should be a great year ahead, stay tuned! -Ben
