As I sit here, alone in my school on the eve of the 2012-13 school year I had a thought, a connection, and I was inspired! (If you want to hear the song I was listening to, go to the end of the post)
I took one more walk around the building and something hit me – like a ton of bricks….
RM Bacon is really doing the impossible! (Our theme this year is Impossible is Nothing!)
I am not sure where it started, or when, but there has been a transformation in the learning spaces of the school.
Some teachers had to give up their space, some had to update because of changes in enrollment, and all of the teachers maintained a positive outlook!
Teachers, armed with fresh ideas gathered from facebook, pintrest, and twitter have redesigned their learning spaces, and paid attention to the most special detail – our message!
After my walk, I felt the emergence of 3 major themes: Classroom Instruction that Works Strategies along with Bloom’s Taxonomy, Positive Behavioral Intervention Support (PBIS), and the Daily 5.
Wow, as if they all collaborated with each other?
This newness spread throughout the school in a collective fashion that is sending the students messages of hope, understanding, and accountability.
A place where they will do the impossible, in a purposeful, collaborative environment.
I was so impressed! I had to blog about how awesome the teachers are here at RM Bacon Elementary.
This is truly a world-class school, in a world class district!
These are just some of the many examples that I found on the eve of 2012-13 school year… Where Impossible is Nothing!
Thank you teachers!
