Mr. Duncan Reveals His Big WIG

Ever heard of "lead measures" and wondered what that means? You may know that it has something to do with tracking goals at school, or at least you may suspect it has something to do with the Leader In Me program. 

To demonstrate what lead measures are and how to use them to reach a goal, Mr. Duncan told the kids about his "Big WIG" - a personal goal he's working toward. This goal is to write a draft of a book. Lead measures are the small, daily actions that will help you to reach a larger goal. Done consistently over time, lead measures help you visualize and track how well you are doing toward reaching your goal. You can see if you need to re-evaluate your goal, change how you approach it, or know if you're on the right track. 

Mr. Duncan is using a calendar tracker (see pictures) with his two lead measures marked on each day that he does them. It gives him a daily reminder to stay focused on his goal. Teachers have encouraged students to come up with their own "Big WIG" that is not necessarily school-related. We hope that the students can be inspired to reach any goal they set their mind to!

Wednesday, December 20 – “Warm the Soles”

    Wear your favorite Christmas socks! And bring in any slightly worn, old shoes to donate to a local thrift shop. Again, bring these to the office.

Mr. Dustin Anderson Is The Recipient Of The Crystal Apple Award

Brookside Elementary News - Tue, 12/19/2017 - 11:22am
Attributions: Mrs. Tamara Smith

Dustin has been teaching for 5 years. He started his first year at Santaquin Elementary and then moved to his favorite job yet,at Brookside Elementary. He loves it so much that he will be a lifer here, as long as he gets to keep his big windowed classroom ;) 

Here is Dustin's story about why he became a teacher: Sarah Matis was the first reason I wanted to be a teacher.  I still remember one time I opened the door for our class going to the library and Mrs. Matis thanked me and told me how I was such a gentlemen for doing it.  In addition to several instances such as that she was constantly lifting other students up and helping them see the positive.  She made everyone feel like they were valued,  it was a lot of small things that made a difference in my life like that that I wanted to do for others.  Also,  seeing the change and impact on others I had teaching on my mission in Japan played a role in it as well and realizing that I enjoyed doing it. I wanted to make a difference in people's lives and change people's lives like mine had been.
