Student Government Recap of Homecoming Week
STEM Teachers benefit from Professional Development and Coaching
Inside Pamela Martin’s Middle School math class at STEM School Highlands Ranch, solving math problems is not always done on paper. With some assignments, the students will toss a ball around the room, calling each other by name and openly debating the equation until the correct answer is announced. The teaching method was developed during a recent professional development and teacher coaching session. The sessions happen at all grade levels and are designed to introduce teachers to new ideas for their classroom and out-of-the-box thinking.
“We learn a lot in college as teachers and I’ve got my Master’s too and I learned a lot there, ” Martin said. “But once you walk out of the college doors the learning can stop if you don’t have professional development and coaches.”
Senior College Night
