I was invited this week to join the AVID Leadership Cadre. This means that I will be trained as an expert in AVID teaching strategies so that I can then teach other teachers. Our districts goals are to implement the AVID program in every middle and high school. I am excited about this opportunity because it means that I will also have the opportunity to train people for AVID on a national level.
Yesterday I attended our first meeting. The other teachers that were selected for the cadre are very experienced and I am really humbled by the group. I am the least experienced teacher and I am still surprised that I was selected for the group. This year they will train us so that next school year we will be ready to implement all the training.
