            Each school of study in our school produced a five to ten minute video on there specific school of study as a recruiting tool for their specific small learning community.  In order to show others these innovative videos to others in a more condensed way, I created a four minute video to showcase the best of each.

  • Science Classes/Requirements-As our school moves to implement Small Learning Communities for the coming school year I, and the Science department head, have moved the science department in a direction more beneficial to the new configuration.  This configuration was achieved through a series of department meetings on professional development days and after school.  More than any other group in the school, the science department appears to be embracing the most recent change.
