Before teachers and classified staff of Cajon Valley Union School District welcomed students back into the classroom, they themselves attended a district-wide conference for professional development and learning. The CVConference, held on August 13th -17th, is filled with sessions that teachers and staff can sign up to attend which include workshops, speakers, and fun!
The workshops are provided by fellow teachers, where teachers can show off their skills, share ideas for the classroom, and build connections with other teachers. Thirty-one-year veteran teacher, Penny Scarbrough of Hillsdale Middle School, said she loves coming to the CVConference because there is so much she can learn that she hadn’t thought of. She gets new ideas and gains excitement to meet her new class at the conference. The conference is something teachers and staff look forward to, and with an 80s theme for this year’s CVConference, attendees got to show their creativity in costumes and dance.
The CVConference featured keynote speaker Mark Schumacher, an educator, speaker, and comedian. His address not only got listeners laughing, but he shared how important it is to better connect with students and colleagues in order to create a caring school community. The welcome back program and other keynote speech featured at the conference was by Superintendent David Miyashiro, where the vision and message of the conference and the school year was highlighted.
The conference is held to not only give educators a chance to learn, but it helps everyone feel that they are apart of the Cajon Valley Union School District team and have a place. Cajon Valley’s mission is to ensure that they have happy students in healthy relationships on a path to gainful employment, but they also want happy employees in healthy relationships!
