This summer, ABPC Program Coordinator Emily Strickland is asking a selection of teachers engaged in our statewide networks to let us know how they’ll be spending their summer break. First Grade teacher Frances Granger is another contributor who plans to mix relaxation with lots of professional learning. Her advice for newbies? “Work on mastering one major teaching strategy a year” to develop deep understanding.
Educators participating in last week’s Key Leaders Network (South) at Pike Road Elementary took time to hear from fourth grade learners about their projects and real-world applications of learning. Cathy Gassenheimer, Executive VP of the A+ Alabama Best Practices Center, shares the story, pics and videos!
