Vernon, Texas ISD Staff Development Feedback

During the August 2012 convocation and professional development the staff of Vernon ISD had the opportunity to hear a message from Bryan Fiese of Motivated Proformance Inc. In his presentation No Teacher Left Behind Part 2 and Creating a Positive Environment, he challenged each one to consider the commonalities and differences in the generations of students and teachers coming face to face in the classrooms and to determine how best to successfully accomplish the tasks of learning. Through the use of life examples and reflections on the recent past, he brought us face to face with the reality of our students of today. Many positive comments were made by teachers who walked away with a realization and hopefully a method to work with the students of today. Brian was with VISD to present No Teacher Left Behind in 2008. The administration was pleased with the links to the previous session that were made, and for the newest staff, the information was just as pertinent to them.
