Teachers College

This year EV is a "lab site" school by Teachers College at Columbia University in New York. What that means is that EV teachers receive in the moment professional development by Reading and Writing experts from Teachers College.


This is a great honor and benefit for our teachers. The teaching staff is committed to being EXCELLENT reading teachers. We get better by learning new strategies and receiving the support we need from professional development experts.


We have spent 7 days over the course of this school year learning what our students and teachers need to be the best they can be in reading and writing. Teachers are working in grade level groups planning, watching demo reasons and trying what they learn. Below are some pictures from the last few days.

Parent Classes

Parenting Advanced Learners Classes: Is your child insatiably curious, a quick learner, intense, sensitive, creative, and perhaps idealistic and a divergent thinker? Children who are advanced learners often display temperamental traits that can challenge, puzzle, and tire out parents and teachers alike. “Parenting Advanced Learners” is a six-session series that provides parents with a comprehensive overview and concrete strategies for nurturing these children, who are sometimes referred to as "gifted." The class addresses intensity, asynchronous development, perfectionism, procrastination, motivation, peer relations, social/emotional needs, self-regulation, executive function skills, existential depression, idealism, frustration tolerance, twice exceptional (gifted plus other issues), and much more. Two series of classes, mornings and evenings, will begin February 5, 2019. Evening classes will take place at the Santa Rosa Accelerated Charter School, and morning classes will take place at the Child Parent Institute on Standish Avenue in Santa Rosa. This class is appropriate for parents of children ages 4-18. For more information, please see the attached flyers, available in Spanish and English.
