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!

My parents, mainly my dad, had a deep affection for Maya Angelou. He had hopes that if he named me after her, that my personality and strength would mirror Dr. Angelou. However, to ensure that my name had some individuality, he decided to spell it with the “uy” to make the long “i (/ɑɪ/)” sound. (Like for the words “guy” and “buy”.) Weird, I know. It caused tons of embarrassing moments being referred to as M-oo-ya as a child and adolescent but I have grown to love it now. Now on to a little snippet about me as a person, not just a name! I am a mother of three lovely children ages 20, 14 and 10. It’s interesting having them all spread out, I get to experience three different stages of growth and maturity all at the same time. I have been a resident of Austin since 1990. (Although, I’ve snuck out of the state to live in Costa Rica for a few years.) I graduated from RRISD, Southwestern University in Georgetown and Texas State University in San Marcos. I started my teaching career in 2002 as a PK Teacher. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach, mentor, coach and now coordinate in the wonderful world of Early Childhood.
