Guided Language Acquisition Development (GLAD)


We are proud to announce that Green Valley School teachers are certified in Guided Language Acquisition Development.  GLAD is an outstanding training that educates teachers on successful, research-based instructional strategies. Our wonderful teachers were certified in GLAD in Spring 2013 and received follow-up coaching in Fall of 2013.  They continue to work in collaborative grade level teams to integrate GLAD strategies while making the transition to Common Core Standards.  Green Valley School has also improved our character education, through GLAD, by teaching our students character traits which are crucial to their social, emotional and academic development.
 
Teachers and staff consistently encourage and remind students to
  1. Show respect
  2. Make good decisions
  3. Solve problems
