Mrs. Susan Ullman
Professional Studies Team Members,
Our full day of Staff Development, November 6th, is approaching fast and we need to complete our preparations. Please remind everyone interested in facilitating a workshop on 11/6 to deliver a WORKSHOP PROPOSAL FORM to my mailbox in 1W8 by 9 am on Monday, October 29th . The core committee will be meeting later that day to review the proposals and finalize the workshop selections, submissions later than Monday morning will be too late to be included in 11/6’s schedule. If anyone needs additional proposal forms or has questions please leave me a note in 1W8 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PST has great news! The Alumni Foundation has offered to spend up to $40,000 throughout the school to upgrade and supplement equipment in department offices and teacher work spaces. This will be in addition to upgrading the UFT Teacher Center and getting the space at the back of the library up and running as a teacher work space. Dr. Matt Mandery and Mr. Brian Cosgrove asked that we compile a list of technological equipment in our offices that we would like to replace, purchase or have repaired. The Foundation’s wish is that we get what we need as soon as possible so please speak with your colleagues asap.
Each department should make one list and one of the team members (listed at the left on this page) from each department should return that list to me by November 1st at the latest. This is a great opportunity, please be sure that we get your department’s input in time!
Our next meeting will be during your C6 period on Wednesday, October 31th. Please report to the ITTC, room 1E20.
