Your thoughts on Micro-credentialing and SIM

Micro-Credentialing and SIM

SIM has opened up a whole new world for me as a teacher and as a professional.  Xtreme Reading was my introduction to SIM, and after I saw the impact of the program on students in my room, I knew I wanted to share Xtreme and SIM with others.  Luckily, I am in a district that is beginning to get serious about changing how we approach adolescent literacy.  As a result, I have been able to attend the SIM PPDIs, and I am excited about being able to officially train in and outside of my district.  

I have learned so much in the last two years.  I would venture to say that I've learned more through the SIM PD than any other PD I've ever attended.  I love how versatile the each strategy is and how you can connect one strategy to the next.  These strategies really have the power to transform classrooms---from the teachers to the students.  With this being only my second year, I know that there is so much more to learn, and I am excited to see where this journey take me, teachers, and students!
