WDC Elementary celebrates ENVoY goal!
Congratulations to Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary for achieving 80-percent of their K-4 classroom teachers as ENVoY-certified.
Principal Louis Rutten said this accomplishment has been a real team effort.
“Everyone has been so open to support each other and practice their ENVoY classroom-management skills. We've grown together as a staff and understand how we can continue to get better together. I am so proud of how we have opened up our classrooms to area teachers to view ENVoY LIVE. We've positively affected about 75 teachers and more than 1,700 students,” Rutten said.
The Wadena-Deer Creek School District has been using the Educational Non-Verbal Yardsticks or ENVoY program after extensive training with NJPA. NJPA is providing about $75,000 to WDC Elementary to be used toward ENVoY training to become an ENVoY Certification and Demonstration Site. This funding has assisted with training teachers and support staff.
The ENVoY approach is based on Michael Grinder's best-selling book for educators called “ENVoY: Your Personal Guide to Classroom Success.”
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS, WDC Elementary teachers on your hard work and efforts!
