Don't close your summer saver account. If you close your summer saver when your retire, you won't be able to re-open it. Your summer saver allows you to set money aside each month and earns a higher rate of interest than a regular savings account.

Put your money to work for you in retirement.

 
   
 

During Spring of the 2023, several GGEA members attended the Good Teaching Conference. Many came back requesting that GGEA bring Alyson Hoberecht to Garden Grove to provide a PD about positive classroom management. We heard you and fortunately Alyson is a teacher in GGUSD. The offices of Elementary and Secondary Education have agreed to let Alyson provide her PD during super week (see the information below). There are also plans to provide additional after school PD opportunities in the 2024/2025 school year.

Educational Experience:

After attending the University of Northern Colorado, I taught fourth grade in Garden Grove for three years. As I pursued my master’s degree, I worked as a teacher on special assignment at the elementary level for six years. Choosing to return to the classroom, I coordinated the AVID program and taught various levels of math at the intermediate level for 16 years. Currently, I serve as a teacher on special assignment in the 7–12 instructional office within the Garden Grove Unified School District. In addition, I enjoy presenting workshops at many universities and conferences, along with teaching group fitness and yoga classes. As I continue to support incredible teachers and students, I am reminded that I have been blessed by the most rewarding and awe–inspiring career anyone can imagine!


Super Week Session:

Positive Classroom Management Strategies and Discipline Techniques

Description: Students take on the characteristics of the teachers they’re with each day! Who are we teaching our students to be? Through a high-energy, interactive method, we will explore multiple positive classroom management strategies and discipline techniques. Time management challenges will be addressed, along with community-building ideas and student engagement techniques that can be implemented throughout the school year. As we surround our students with positive, consistent practices, they begin to feel safe to take risks, make mistakes, learn, and grow. Come learn to effectively and consistently balance consequences with care within our classrooms and schools!

Materials Needed: Please bring a district device to support online access and a writing utensil.

  • Thursday, August 1, 2024
  • Annex, Staff Development Room
  • 8:30 – 11:00 am
