Monrovia Middle - A Tradition of Excellence - Est 1997
October 12, 2015 - SUCCESS STORY
Coach Watts and Ms. Miles, collaborate in order to meet the needs of their students. One of the toughest things to do is have that ability to interchange, in a collaborative setting, the "leader" of the class.
The success story is what can happen in the collaborative setting, Ms. Miles took the lead. Ms. Miles was the "leader" the "teacher" in the class. This was an on purpose and represents a high level of preparation and planning. Coach Watts was right there in the thick of the lesson assisting and teaching as well.
One of the most important lessons from this is the one that the students were not assessed on...the modeling of collaboration and shared leadership. This type of success happens every time we engage with one another about a student we have concerns about, get advice on strategies we want to try with our students, when we endeavor to collectively improve our craft, or even share frustrations with Canvas representatives during our time off from work. We are learning right along with everyone else!!!
Congratulations Coach Watts and Ms. Miles for striving to BE THE ONE x2!!!
