Elementary Education Director: Marsha Woodard

"We always offer the newest trends (in teaching)," said Marsha Woodard, director of elementary education and staff development for Catawba County Schools."That's the biggest pull."It's the second summer staff development program offered through the school system.This year, CCS split the program into two weeks of workshops — one immediately after the school year ended and the second just before teachers start gearing up for the new school year.Woodard said attendance has nearly doubled for the optional workshops.She said the average attendance has been 150-200 teachers each day, with many teachers opting to enroll in multiple workshops.Woodard said in many other counties, the courses are taken at the teacher's expense; however, the workshops offered by CCS provide a free method of earning credits toward license renewal.For the first time ever, CCS has also invited teachers from Newton-Conover City Schools and Hickory Public Schools, as well as private schools like Concordia Christian Day School and St. Stephens Lutheran School."We can learn so much from each other," Woodard said."We're hoping this is the start of something very big."Woodard said CCS uses the "train the trainer" model, which involves sending curriculum specialists to training sessions in various teaching methods and concepts.After the curriculum specialists become proficient in the curriculum, they instruct the other teachers how to apply the same techniques in their own classrooms."What it is, is teachers helping teachers," Woodard said.Meanwhile, principals attended a Response to Instruction intervention program designed to make sure students get the right interventions in the classrooms to make them successful learners, Woodard said.Implementation of the program is still three to five years away, she said.Woodard said most of the teachers attended in order to learn about cutting-edge technology and concepts they can implement in the classrooms."Good teachers are always looking for new ideas," Woodard said.The school system also encouraged its newly hired teachers to attend workshops before they start the Beginning Teacher Institute on Monday.Woodard said it's a good way for the new teachers to get ahead of other new teachers, because they are already becoming familiar with key terminology and the newest teaching concepts."It's great to know our teachers go to school year-round," Woodard said.
