Marilyn Schmitke from Jigsaw Learning facilitated a professional learning opportunity for my teaching staff in August 2019. She prefaced the meeting with multiple conversations with myself to identify staff and school needs and draft a framework for the activities for the day. Marilyn was instrumental in providing me support, who, as a brand new administrator, was uncertain of how to move forward and apprehensive about how to address the sense of team as a new leader. Marilyn was a wealth of knowledge, providing multiple suggestions as to approaches that could be considered as first steps. Marilyn spoke with confidence and supported me through the process. Marilyn facilitated team building activities and then norm-setting with the teaching staff so that I was able to be a participant and work alongside my staff. Marilyn remained positive at all times while being realistic and addressing concerns of the staff through the process. It was an excellent day and set the foundation for an excellent start to the school year and the school team with a new leader.
