While our students were home for an extra day of winter break, the teachers and staff of District 109 returned to school on Monday, January 5th for the 2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Conference. We are fortunate to have teacher-leaders in District 109 with high levels of expertise in a range of topics, allowing us to schedule nearly 60 different sessions led by our own Deerfield teachers. We also partnered with Downers Grove Grade School District 58 for a coach swap, where six instructional coaches from District 58 along with Assistant Superintendent, Matt Rich, presented to our teachers, bringing new ideas, methodologies, and strategies to District 109. Earlier this year, we sent several iCoaches from District 109 to lead sessions at the District 58 Teaching and Learning Conference, so both districts benefited from the outside perspectives at each conference.
Because we emphasize sharing our resources with one another, many presenters have made their presentations public. You can view those presentations here. We are proud of the dedicated teachers and staff of District 109 who are passionate about continuous learning. Check out some of the photos below that captured many presenters at this year’s conference.
We’re looking forward to an exciting 2015!
