Teacher Enrichment - Classroom Management for K-5

Sunday, October 21, 1:30pm - 3:30pm

The prospect of facing a classroom full of kids can be daunting for both new and old teachers alike. We also know that effective teacher training is a lifespan education, a conversation between teachers, students, and parents. These classes are designed to bring teachers together and continue this conversation.

Led by Mark VanKempen, who has a MA in Education as well as 10 years of classroom experience, these classes will help develop and expand your teaching skills. Each class will have a topic and a co-teacher with knowledge of that topic. These classes will be held regularly on the third Sunday of each month. They are geared toward SGD teachers, but anyone interested can attend.

This class's topic is Classroom Management for Grades K-5. Our co-teacher is Melissa Villanueva, an elementary teacher with a MA in Elementary Education, and currently an SGD teacher for the 4/5 class. We'll be looking at how to create effective classroom routines and culture, how to deal with discipline, how to involve parents in the conversations about management, and more.

Facilitators: Mark VanKempen <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> and Melissa Villanueva

Details: Sunday, October 18, 1:30pm - 3:30pm. A light lunch will be provided.

Minimum class size - 5    Maximum - 15

UUAA Community of Writers

Recurring sessions on Second Sundays from 1:00pm - 2:30pm: October 14, November 11, December 9, January 13, February 10, March 10, April 14 and May 12. Anyone is welcome at any session.

Adult writers (beginning, intermediate, advanced, potential) interested in an open, supportive community to foster self-awareness, spiritual growth, creative expression, communication, and social witness through the writing arts are invited to join the UUAA Community of Writers.

This group is based on the premise that every person is a writer.  In each session, everyone is invited to share their writings with the group, in confidence and with appreciative feedback. The group’s shared leadership means that any member, following the Community of Writers’ guidelines, may lead a session focused on a theme, purpose for writing, or form of writing, such as poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, personal essay, journaling, blogging, and more. In the past year the Community of Writers held three readings of their original writings to which the congregation was invited. Newcomers are always welcome.
