As you all go off into Thanksgiving break, I wanted to share a quick note and video about last week’s site visit to Heritage and Emerson schools. We hosted 3 people from Classkick (the founder, a teacher support specialist and an engineer). They had connected with 8th grade Math teacher from Freedom, Alix Wilt, when they noticed her work with Classkick and her students. (p.s. Classkick is in self service!)
Within 2 hours after they left the visit, I had this message in my inbox:
"We are back in our office and have hardly stopped talking about our visit at your district and schools today. Thank you so much for an inspiring and learning-filled morning! Please extend our gratitude to all of the administrators, teachers and students. We have been in a lot of schools and districts over time and were really impressed by the intentional culture and environment you have set up as a district. The amount of ownership and empowerment you provide to students was truly unbelievable and something we haven't seen often! As people who are deeply passionate about education and students, we cannot wait to continue to support you moving forward."
Be sure to check out what I captured from the visit in the 11.16.2017 Site Visit Video!
I am thankful for site visitors who share their reflections with us! What are you thankful for this year?
Have a safe and happy holiday!
