2017 Mastermind Membership Cohort 1 Dashboard

Cohort 1: Mastermind Dashboard

Think of the dashboard as your home base as well as “library” for all digital files related to the Mastermind experience. The dashboard also houses session audio files and notes. The dashboard is not interactive, therefore, if you have questions, want to share a resource, or are looking for “tribe” support, please use our FaceBook group.

    • Marcia: I pledge that I’m committed to doing the best that I can to ensure that students with disabilities in Colorado are valued for who they are, included in their communities and reach their ultimate potential where they bring joy to themselves and those around them. This will be through the influence I have in creating Professional Development for Special Educators and Related Services Personnel who serve young children in publicly funded programs in the state. I will measure my success everyday by connecting the work I do to the elements of instructional design. Decisions I make will be guided by the ID process and projects that are developed under my guidance will have documented design elements and processes.

    • Ted: Write column for YEC, which hopefully you were able to do;) My follow-up question or invitation is to identify a few things you want to do as you prepare for the Board meeting at CEC. Feel free to use this group to help you focus and plan.
    • Robin: Explore own support system. My follow-up is to invite you to continue to explore “what” you mean by support and then begin to think about the who and how they can provide the “it.”
    • Chrystee: Focus on both/and when it comes to styles of coaching and get something into place and moving forward with the team. My follow-up question for you to consider is, “How will you continue to build your leadership skills and respond with compassion and calmness, as drama and crises continue to emerge?”

    • Marcia: Use Google Keep to list out all the different projects and begin to prioritize which one(s) to focus on when in the hot seat.
