Roving Reporter - Elkins Pointe - Workshop Wednesday

Elkins Pointe - Workshop Wednesday

As part of their personalized learning transition, Elkins Pointe MS wanted teachers to work on moving their instructional model into a workshop set-up. However, change isn't always easy, so administrators "gifted" the teachers with a TKES-free zone to help get them underway! Take a look at this week's Roving Reporter video for more information!
