February Teacher Lesson of the Month

Each month the students at RMS have the opportunity to nominate a teacher for the "Lesson of the Month." The goal is to celebrate teachers who go above and beyond to plan lessons that are engaging, hands on and creative. We know that our kids learn best when they are active in their learning. Last month, TLOM was awarded to 7th and 8th Grade Spanish Teacher, Ms. Miroff for a lesson she taught that was engaging and celebrated Black History Month. Mrs. Miroff's student said, "we did a scavenger hunt learning about African Americans and everything was in Spanish. It was fun and helped me learn more Spanish. It felt great to learn more about people who look like me and to see what they did for our country. I like the way Ms. Miroff teaches because she always explains the work thoroughly and if you have a question she is always there to help answer it. She really cares and always tries to make sure we are "ok." Great job Ms. Miroff!
