On Oct. 16th, the teachers became the students during Lakota Learning Day. The day’s theme, #WEareNetworked, set the tone for the day’s professional development sessions. Following a successful PD day in September, Lakota’s curriculum department put the call out to teachers and staff members for not only session ideas, but volunteers to lead them. This resulted in over 100 teachers leading more than 75 separate sessions.

“People like having choices in their day,” said Keith Koehne, Executive Director of Curriculum. “The morning was designed to give teachers the chance to attend sessions that they are interested in. A common request we hear is that teachers need more time to collaborate and plan so the afternoon gave the teachers the opportunity to collaborate with one another on topics they are interested in.”

Superintendent Matthew Miller began the day speaking about the different ways #WEareNetworked. “I’m very excited that it is teachers sharing with teachers today. As teachers, we are networked with our peers, not only in our own building, but across the district. At Lakota, #WEareNetworked within our district and with other like-minded, forward-thinking schools across Ohio and the country.”

Teachers took to Twitter to share what they were learning throughout the day.
