Bucket Drops to Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Sherman!

Mrs. Morgan is always willing to participate, give feedback and engage in dialogue for just about anything with a warm smile! Her social/emotional group, Critical Friends is an asset to our campus. Passing by her room has put a smile on my face for five years!

Mr. Sherman has put together some really amazing experiences for our students. The Malala Field Trip but also as an amazing collaborator on the last two Hernandez Way lessons during Flex! Great work! Best part they are always there for IB on our campus! I appreciate y'all to the moon and back!
