Hello SRI Colleagues,
Winter Meeting kicked off today, and while many of you are here with us in Boston, others are spread throughout the country and the world. We wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to experience Winter Meeting so I will quickly share some artifacts from our work together today.
We started today with a very brief video of teacher thank-yous from Storycorps. Followed by a welcome by Mark Otto and SRI Board introductions by Teri Schrader.
Our theme this year is based on telling your story, and our Organizational Director, Kari Thierer, framed this theme for us. Check out the process we used together to start telling our stories and distilling one into one sentence that was facilitated by Gene Thompson-Grove.
You can see feeds of all of our work here, and you can search twitter, instagram, and flickr for #sriwm14 and join our facebook group. If you would like to participate from wherever you are, you can send your one-sentence story by tweeting it with #sriwm14, posting it in our facebook group, or emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing our colleagues in Boston for breakfast and morning Learning Experiences tomorrow, and everyone can keep following us on our feeds.
On behalf of School Reform Initiative and the Winter Meeting Planning Team
