As I have been settling in to Discovery, I have been impressed with the dedication of our teachers. Not only have they have created warm and engaging learning environments, they have attended a wide variety of meaningful courses this summer. In fact, Issaquah educators have been fortunate to have three nationally known leaders in Education present at conferences just this last week. Presentations focused on meaningful assessment and reporting of student progress, and the importance of helping students develop personal strengths while providing a well-rounded and balanced education. The district leadership team coordinated these events and I know Discovery teachers were encouraged by them.
Please know that as I am new to Issaquah School District, I am looking forward to meeting you and your children. I encourage you to attend the PTSA Family Barbeque on Friday, September 11th and also Curriculum Nights. Until then, enjoy these last days of the amazing summer we have enjoyed here in the beautiful northwest.
