Tuesday--Explore!!

On Tuesday, Brenda and I will be coming to your classroom to talk to your students about Explore! Brenda is our Explore Liaison and this is a task that was given to us. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we know this is short notice, spontaneous and on a WINGS day. We will be brief and try to keep it to around 10 minutes.

SEQUIOTA SPOTLIGHT: Linda Pawlowski

Linda Pawlowski...where to begin! Linda is one of the most positive people I know! Linda truly puts her students first and after MANY years of teaching is STILL learning! Linda is a life-long learner and so are her students! Each week that I'm in Linda's classroom I see something new! Linda is truly a teacher/learner at heart. Linda is organized, a great communicator and truly builds relationships with her students. Linda goes above and beyond....Linda wrote a grant and received iPads for her class as well as innovative flexible seating! Linda is always seeking ways to improve and is a team player and collaborates with colleagues often! Linda is best at obtaining student input. Everything Linda does in her classroom is driven by students. Linda is creative and constantly coming up with new ways to teach things. Linda is driven and determined to make sure she remains on the cutting edge of education! We are going to miss you Linda! Thank you for giving us a little sunshine every single day!
