It's a Personal Thing...

Learning gets personal at RTMS - Dec. 9, 2015

Where are we now?

This year has been marked by many changes, and all of you have been troupers! We are on the leading edge of revolutionary change in education, and being on the front lines can be exciting, but also scary. I'm very proud of the willingness you have to try new things. You are dedicated, hard working teachers, who make a difference everyday. What you put into your classes makes a huge difference. As we reflect on personalized learning, it is important to take a look at how far we've come, where we are now, and what comes next... Check out the info graphic below about our Personalized Learning Journey to learn more about the process.


Best,
