“There is absolutely no research correlation between success and family background, race, national origin, financial status, or even educational accomplishments. There is but one correlation with success, and that is ATTITUDE.”
from The First Days of School: How to be an Effective Teacher  by Harry K. Wong and Rosemary Tripi Wong


We know you have been back to school for a few weeks, but we wanted to be sure to say

“WELCOME BACK!!!” We hope your school year is off to a positive and encouraging start.

We want to remind everyone that the Southtown Teachers’ Center (as well as other Teacher Centers in the Far West Network) is an approved CTLE (Continuing Teacher and Leader Education) Sponsor for holders of Professional Classroom Teacher/School Leader and Level III Teaching Assistant Certificates.

This year we will be offering a variety of courses and workshops. Please watch your mailbox, school email account, and our website (www.stcweb.org) for information concerning these courses and workshops as we will only be publishing 4 Newsletters this school year.

As always, let us know if there is a course, workshop, or resource that you feel will be helpful to you and your students.

Have a great year!


Janet and Marianne
