Do You Know Billy Snow???

Well, do you?  He is the superintendent in Mansfield and he led our training on Monday and will lead another one on Friday.  He has a lot of energy and I have truly enjoyed his passion for the kids.  Our school will be modeling Mansfield's schedule for next year.  Mr. Snow has shared success stories from his campus and the previous schools that he has been a principal. The schedule has an hour built-in intervention time and then everything else is scheduled around that time.  During the intervention time the kids not needing RTI will work on Think Tanks.  Think Tanks.  Now, I haven't seen these, I'm not even really sure what they are, but the kids will work independently on these tanks for about 3-4 days.  Intrigued??  Me too.  The make-&-take and training will be this unless you have info to share with me, then you will stay in suspense until after I have been trained.  I'm looking forward to making, taking, and sharing!!

That's the extent of my knowledge on this.....  

In the meantime I must stay big baby left Tuesday to play baseball in Tampa, then off to Jupiter, and finally I'll meet up with him at the end of the month in Fort Meyers.  I am SUPER proud of his hard work and I know he will make new friendships and cool memories BUT {sniff, sniff} I just miss him terribly.  It feels like just yesterday he was going to t-ball games and acting like Spider-man.  

Yikes!  He's too big for all that now......he's bigger than me.  Sweet boy. 

Okay, subject change.  I will get back to you soon about Think Tanks but in the meantime, if you know something that you would like to share with me, I would LOVE to hear from you.

Have a Sweet Day!!
