MPACT 2013 has ended

The Curriculum & Instruction Department of Manor ISD is pleased to announce MPACT.  Through MPACT, learners will be inspired to impact our students, exchange ideas with other teacher leaders, administrators, and community partners; and learn ways to engage and motivate our diverse student population. This teaching and learning institute is appropriate for all of us because we are interested in "Impacting Student Achievement Through Engaged, Aligned Classrooms."  

We encourage you to arrive early for check in to get your swag bag and to start your day networking with your fellow MISD educators before the sessions begin . Click here to download a pdf version of the full progam for MPACT. It will provide you with tips on how to make the most of your day. Additionally, SCHED Planner is the tool you will use to build your personal itinerary for MPACT. Most sessions are designed for any audience and  sessions are faciliated by your peers and some guest speakers. If you are unsure how to register, watch this video.

Star the sessions that you would like to attend. Choose only ONE session per timeslot. It will be important that you bring your technology since we will not have paper copies available and any updates to sessions and session locations will be available on this site only. Remember to bookmark the mobile app or print your schedule before you come. Dress comfortably as there are some sessions that will be very interactive. Finally, check out all of our participating vendors and exhibitors. Stop by their tables to hear and/or see what they have to offer. You never know what types of goodies you will pick up at their tables or what you may win at the end of the day.  See you at MPACT!

Oak Meadows Elementary School
Workshop & Proposal Committee Chairperson
My name is Alejandro Góngora and I am honored and excited to be the Principal of a diverse and exciting campus. Oak Meadows Elementary opened in the 2008-2009 school year and our faculty and staff have been working hard to meet the needs of our students. I received my Bachelor of Science in Applied, Learning, and Development from the University of Texas at Austin and my Masters in Educational Administration from Texas State University. I am in my thirteenth year in education with experiences as a 4th grade bilingual teacher, middle school language arts teacher, reading specialist, instructional specialist, and administrator. I spent 10 days at the Art of Leadership Principal’s Institute at the Harvard Graduate School of Education collaborating with administrators and educators from 26 states and 8 countries. I have high expectations for all our students, faculty, parents, community and myself.
