We were honored to be invited to present at the PLC at Work Insitutes in New Orleans and St. Louis.  It was incredible to be with such a dynamic group of teachers and administrators engaging and learning more about becoming a successful Professional Learning Community.  Indeed, Dr. Rick DuFour helped everyone in the audience gain a more clear picture of where the PLC movement is and how a PLC attitude is cultivated.  MasteryConnect’s own Trenton Goble presented and discussed PLC implementation strategies using MasteryConnect.

The MasteryConnect team had an amazing experience, and would like to thank the Solution Tree staff for putting on such an incredible event.  It was really exciting to hear Dr. DuFour talk about the four essential questions of a PLC, which MasteryConnect is dedicated to helping teachers answer.  We strive to provide solutions that focus on the big ideas of PLCs, so it was inspiring to hear Rebecca DuFour discuss creating a collaborative culture, focusing on learning and emphasizing results.

In addition to presenting to and gaining valuable insight from attendees, our staff also learned about the variety of PLC implementation efforts going on around the country.  It was invigorating to see so many teachers who care about their students and want to work as teams.  We felt ecstatic to be able to share our tools and watch the relief on teachers’ faces when they realized that implementing a PLC can happen in days, not years.

 MasteryConnect will be presenting at the PLC at Work Institute in Las Vegas this week in another special lunch session after Dr. Rick DuFour’s keynote.  We’re excited to engage with the audience in our interactive presentation and we’ll even be giving away another iPad during the session!  The Las Vegas Institute is all sold out, so if you were lucky enough to have a ticket to the event, we’ll see you there!
