Troy teachers led most of the learning sessions at Troy Community School District 30-C's Teacher Institute Day this month. The district of five elementary schools, an intermediate school and a middle school holds four institute days each year – two of them just before the beginning of the school year and the other two interspersed throughout the year.
Session topics included new methods to integrate technology into the classroom, effective use of student feedback, assessment strategies, implementation of Next Generation Science Standards, and new strategies to help students become independent thinkers.
William B. Orenic Intermediate School teacher Jennifer Lipa was one of the presenters.
Other Troy teachers who presented at the Teacher Institute Day were Laura Balogh, Debra Briley, Melissa Coriell, Theresa Oberding, Stacey Brainard, Adam Pusateri, Anita Garvert, Kim Richardson, Martha Paben, Ann McCue, Anne Kasa, Colleen Hanson, Nicole Barr, Ashley Cann, Danielle Rooney, Amy Deang, Donna Jurinek, Misty Dillon, Kim Rothstein, Jill Wieher, Shannon Kula, Trudie Howard, Joan Brenza, Susan Hulbert and Ashley Lamorte.
