Working Weekend in Unalakleet, Feb 13-15


by Perry Corsetti, BSSD Curriculum Department

It was a sweetheart of a weekend! Sixteen teachers from around the district were able to travel to Unalakleet for the first Working Weekend of the new year. Working Weekends are designed to create a supportive and collaborative environment for teacher planning. One participant wrote: “Thanks for another great working weekend! It is so beneficial to have time to “map out” our plans, for months at a time, surrounded by our colleagues. Each time I participate, I learn something new and always come away from these weekends feeling recharged and focused on the weeks ahead. It is a great chance to collaborate, work in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere and…oh ya, it’s fun! I know I’ve made this pitch before, but it would be really valuable to do this quarterly – or at the very least, once at the beginning of the year and again at the start of second semester. ;) Thanks again for the opportunity.”
