I hope everyone is looking forward to the snow melting and temperatures staying above 40 degrees as much as I am! This past week many classrooms had the opportunity to celebrate and say goodbye to this year’s class of GVSU student teachers. Our students and staff have been fortunate to have their support, enthusiasm, care and knowledge with us this school year. Although each of them will be missed, it is exciting to think about the impact they will have on students in future years. For some, we will continue to see them though as they have accepted temporary positions with as we finish out the school year!
This past Thursday our school had staff from KnowledgeWorks visit our school to take video of a variety of amazing things our teachers are doing as well as hear from our staff about what we are doing in relation to implementing personal mastery for all our students. We were also recently recognized on mlive for our implementation efforts of personal mastery.
