On Friday, Feb. 17 more than 700 people gathered at
Monticello High School for the district’s second annual
Staff chose from more than 30 workshops that ran the gamut from “The Radicalization of Social Media” to “Yoga” to “Robotics.” Many of these workshops were taught by Monticello staff members who are utilizing innovative educational strategies in their own classrooms and sharing their knowledge with their colleagues.
Most attendees were from Monticello Central School District, but professionals from throughout Sullivan County came to develop new skills and strategies as well. The conference’s theme this year was: InspirED by learning, InspirED by each other, InspirED by innovation.
Every single person in this district has the potential to make a positive impact on our students -- from our bus drivers to our food service workers to our administrators,” Superintendent of Schools Tammy Mangus said. “For our students to be excellent, they must be surrounded by excellence – which is why we offer opportunities for growth such as the InspirED conference to all of our Monticello team members.”
