INSPIRING STUDENTS THROUGH INNOVATIVE EDUCATION

Forney Independent School District 600 South Bois d’Arc, Forney, TX 75126 972-564-4055

Dear Forney ISD Colleagues: I’d like to personally welcome each of you to the first ever Forney ISD Professional Learning Conference! You are about to experience a dream come true. In the FISD Division of Accountability and Learning we often share our experiences of seeing wonderful creative instructional strategies being implemented by teachers, remarkable progress being achieved by our students, and inspiring learning climates being created on our campuses. As we discussed all the positive experiences encountered on the campuses, it became evident that a wealth of talent existed throughout our district. The question then became, why spend thousands of dollars at conferences seeing other schools present when we have a gold mine of talent under our very nose! So we began to dream of a back to school conference designed not only to showcase some of the exceptional talent in our district, but to also provide you a choice in honing your professional skills. Today that dream becomes a reality! We believe you have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. I want to say a special thank you to all of the courageous presenters who have stepped up to help us transform this dream into reality. You are to be commended. Teachers are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and our students could not achieve the level of success that they do without your support and leadership. Your passion for education fuels our vision of “Inspiring Students through Innovative Education.”

Throughout this conference, I ask you to stay

engaged, learn all you can and help us shape the future of Forney ISD. My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you. Sincerely,

Suzie McWilliams, Deputy Superintendent

Students at both high schools competed for the honor of having their design chosen as our conference logo. Out of the fifteen entries, three students in Regina DeDominicis’ Graphic Design class at FHS were chosen to create a collaborative image from their designs. Our beautiful logo incorporates a bit of history from last year’s conference, “Made to Stick” as well as this year’s theme “Built to Last”. These creative students are responsible for the logo proudly displayed on all of our conference regalia and advertising. We are very proud of Tara White, Audrey Ortega and Tyler Goodfred. Tara White, a graduating senior, will attend Utah Valley University. While at FHS Tara participated in the Chamber Choir and was Captain of the Swim Team. Audrey Ortega is a senior this year and hopes to attend UT Tyler where she plans to major in Nursing. As a member of the school soccer team she also designed team shirt. Tyler Goodfred (not pictured below) will be a junior this year. Unfortunately he was on a band trip the day of the district recognition.

Participants in this session will review the components of the Developmental Reading Assessment as well as techniques and strategies to use when assessing reading levels. By incorporating these best practices participants will ensure that their data is unbiased, valid and reliable. "When an independent reading component is added, test scores go up." ~ Reggie Routman "When we follow routines day after day, our students can use their energy to grow as readers and learners rather than to figure out what we expect them to do. And we in turn, can focus our energy on teaching, not managing our independent learners. ~ Kathy Collins Come and learn about the Daily Five. The Daily Five is a student-driven management structure designed to fully engage students in reading and writing. Participants will learn the structure and how to incorporate into their classroom routines. This session is a repeat of 2097. During the session the participants will discover interventions for typical behaviors that are disruptive to the classroom. They will also discover how/what is positive reinforcement and when reinforcement increases the likelihood of the behavior both good and bad. The participants will learn about the conflict cycle with the teacher and the student and how to break the cycle. They will also receive clarified definitions of problem behaviors (anxiety vs. opposition). The participants will also learn interventions for behaviors that are viewed as social maladjustment and how to distinguish them. This is a repeat session of 20136 and 2144.
