Innovative Learning Lab Opens at Rommelt

A space designed with six different learning zones to encourage engagement and collaboration among students. The learning lab has both high tech and low tech options available and is designed to meet the needs of all students. If you would like to schedule a time to see how the room could work for your students, please contact me and I will be happy to schedule a time to walk you through the lab.

If you have interest in scheduling the lab with your students, please contact me by email and I can reserve the lab for you. All reservations of the lab must come through me. I have also set-up an online calendar for the lab. This calendar is only designed to show you the availability of the lab. The link to the calendar is:

Personnel Growth Opportunities - Coming Soon

Are you looking for ways to expand your own personal learning while also providing some potential new innovative learning opportunities for your students? If you answered yes, then we have some great things for you.


The last week of September, I will be talking to each team or department about some professional growth models that you can become a part of. These professional growth opportunities will provide some online technology courses and book study opportunities for you to grow professionally while earning Act 48 credit at the same time. We are hoping these opportunities will allow you to grow professionally and it will also bring new ideas into your classroom for your students.


Stay tuned, great things are coming!
