This past week, Mrs. Brackett and myself participated in an
#EveryClassroom Challenge with administrators from the entire
district. The challenge was for EVERY administrator, at EVERY
school, to get into EVERY teacher's classroom during the week.
This allowed Mrs. Brackett and I to each visit 45 classrooms
in a three day period! It was indeed a fabulous week, and time
very well spent. It was inspiring to watch dedicated and
passionate teachers work their "magic" to ensure that all
students were learning at high levels. Teachers were greeting
kids at the door, teaching and learning was happening from
bell-to-bell,clear objectives and daily learning targets provided
a "learning road map" for students, multiple and effective teaching
strategies promoted an environment of student engagement, and
formative assessments were used to check for student understanding.
It is clear that the Faculty and Staff of Fossil Ridge Intermediate
sincerely care about the academic, social, and personal well
being of each student. Our teachers are also willing to "do
whatever it takes" to ensure that ALL students are provided
the necessary opportunities and resources to learn at high levels.
Last week simply supported everything I already knew...We have
an EXCELLENT school because we have a dedicated group of adults
who understand that everything we do centers on our students
and their success.
