Class size panel: Albertans can’t see what is being done with the funding because the government doesn’t have an effective process for tracking what jurisdictions do with the funds.

Early morning! Getting started with the Women’s Leadership Breakfast at #ATASumCon with keynote Shelley Magnusson! Full house! "Pulling the curtain back on the issues facing women in leadership."

Karen Polard @kpolard

Let’s talk power and uberconfidence. Shelley Magnusson owned the room during our Women’s Leadership Breakfast! Thank you for going first.

Spent the morning discussing the economics of education and examining the political landscape of Alberta. My main takeaway, voting in this upcoming ­election is vital for everyone.

What an amazing week some of our team have had! We are coming away with new ideas, strategies, and information. Bring on a new year! #ATA­sumcon #newideas

Women’s Leadership Breakfast. It is a challenge to overcome those 2nd generation biases: unconscious, subtle, invisible, and inadvertent barriers.

Terrific dad & son week spent at @banffcentre while I learned with colleagues at #atasumcon. Thanks @albertateachers for supporting #worklifebalance #familymatters #momteacherlife.

On starting a new school year

Sean Beaton @backcountrynut

How do you introduce yourself to the parents of your students at the beginning of the year? Letter home? Email? Telephone call? Reaching out at the very beginning of the year is crucial for relationship building.

Alexander McDonald @acmcdonaldgp

I love this time of the year! Looking forward to spending time with my entire work family tomorrow, and to being in our schools next week to greet new students! Happy new (school) year everyone!
