Marsha Moyer Works with Lake County Educators
On August 31, 2015 and October 23, 2015, educators from across Lake County met in Paisley to work with Marsha Moyer. Marsha is a long-time Oregon teacher and administrator who now works as a consultant committed to improving teaching and learning in Oregon. She is passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people. Marsha used the new Oregon teacher evaluation system to illustrate effective teaching methods and how to engage all learners. Her presentation was highly interactive, using videos of actual classrooms, demonstrations, discussion, and electronic “clickers” to have educators vote on how effective the examples were. The session was very well received.
A few of the comments from Lake County educators:
“I am ready to go to class and engage my students.”
“It was helpful and motivating.”
“I like seeing the strategies at work.”
“I was able to view multiple teachers using varied strategies. I was able to discuss with peers what was good and bad about the instruction.”
“Using examples from classrooms was great. The visual of voting was great.”
“Great reinforcement of the good things we are doing.”
“Very informative. The modeling of the strategies and techniques was great.”
“It was great to see actual teachers and score them.”
“She kept us very engaged-very fun! October will be great!
“Lots of engagement and discussion to help with understanding.”
“Great presenter. Best inservice I’ve been to.”
Marsha will meet again with all Lake County educators on Friday, October 23. Needless to say, we are really looking forward to it.
