Welcome Back

Engage! Encourage! Empower! 

Welcome Back to School! Some of you have been teaching in Montgomery County for more than 30 years. For some of you, this is your first year teaching.  No matter your status, welcome back to another year of school! 

Last year was an amazing year! Preliminary results say that 19 of 19 schools are fully accredited in math - 100%! Eighteen of 19 schools are accredited in reading and writing! You worked hard and it shows. I am so proud of all that you have accomplished and of the ways you engage, encourage and empower our students every day.  Let's keep doing it - motivating our students do to their very best. 

As you move through the year, I know you will continue to engage our students in the classroom. Dr. Almarode provided us with a handy acronym for a few engagement tactics during the All-County Opening:
S - Sensory Motor
A - Auditory
V - Visual
E - Emotion

I hope this acronym is helpful as you look for new ways to engage your students. 

You make the difference in a child's life. Please take a moment every day to make your students feel like you chose them to be in your classroom.

Thank you,
Brenda Blackburn
