There is something for everybody
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Bill Erickson about his path to education, our unique wood-shop program, and the process of designing, building, and creating products for the annual tech show. There are too many awesome statements to list in one write-up, so I'll just encourage you to give this podcast a listen.
I always find some amazing products at the art and tech show in the spring, but as Bill highlights, the final outcomes are only a small representation of the work and the learning process. All of our classes have the final exam, project, or performance, but Bill makes an amazing point that we should never lose sight of the day to day grind that gets our students to that final point in the year. I want to thank Bill for his time and the reminder that it is the day to day exercises that engage our students in the learning process, not the final exam.
As the first quarter progressed, I became increasingly aware of how important we are to each kid in this building. We regularly highlight the talents of the students at Morris Knolls because they are the focus of our occupation, but our staff is impressive and I am grateful for everyone that has shared a piece of their classroom with me this fall.
I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and I hope you enjoy episode #3 of the Morris Knolls Minute.
