This summer, 13 Holy Family educators invested four days of their summer for an intensive training in social emotional development. Holy Family began collaboration with Top 20 Training last August, and it provided tremendous insights and energy to the staff. We continued working with them throughout the school year, and are planning to continue engaging in order to enrich our community with an increasingly strong culture of learning and growth. This summer’s professional development included topics such as metacognition (self-awareness), collaboration, creativity, resiliency, and grit or growth mindset. The entire staff will continue to collaborate throughout the summer in order to have our skids thoroughly greased, for a tremendous start back to the school year in August.
