Teachers, who navigate the day from the helm of their classrooms, watch a sea of students for four minutes between each passing, often swimming against the current to get to the next eddy of a classroom.

As graduates of the K -12 experience, we all have our memories. They’re funny, they’re nostalgic, they’re sometimes better left forgotten, but the one thing we can’t truly remember is the physical and mental stamina required to get through a day – we lose that memory very quickly!

So, in order to remember, to empathize, and to consider the experience of the students in our care, we are going to step into their shoes.

From November 19-22, fourteen CMHS teachers and two students from each grade level will be participating in the National "Shadow a Student" Challenge. Ms. Griffin, Mr. McLean, Mrs. Bardetti, Mr. Kerwin, Mrs. Calvo, Mrs. MacIntosh, Mrs. Cornock, Mrs. Madeiros, Mrs. Kusins, Mr. Witkowski, Ms. Haen, Ms. Whipple, Mrs. Markram, and Mr. Tresca will each shadow a student for one day. They'll each meet a student in their homeroom, attend all of their classes, complete all of their assigned work, and participate in their after school commitments.

Our goal is to reflect on the daily demands of our students and gain insight to help us build a more supportive learning community for all. We look forward to sharing our findings with you in the coming weeks!
