  • I gain a lot more perspective looking at everyone’s roles just in a different set of shoes. @000Dave

  • One thing that I enjoy teaching is teaching those things that cannot be measured by tests. I’ve really been focusing on our four critical 21st century skills, and those are really just life skills now that we are in the 21st century. We work on creating, collaborating, communicating and critical thinking. @000Dave

  • It’s less of what we are doing, it is how we are doing it. @000Dave

  • It’s catching students who have an opportunity to do better and it is reteaching them. @000Dave

  • They realized Bluejacket Pride is synonymous with PBIS in our building. @000Dave
