This year, N-CCS has started an initiative in which staff members nominate a team who they feel is deserving of being named Team of the Month. With special thanks to our sponsor Prodigy Voice and Data, this team will be awarded with district recognition and a $100 stipend. Throughout the month, teams are nominated through a Google form, and a committee votes on the winner of the Team of the Month on or around the 15th of each month. In February, the teachers on the 2nd Grade Team at Shuford Elementary School were voted by schools in the district to receive this honor!
The 2nd Grade Team at Shuford Elementary have all risen to the challenge this year as their school has transitioned into its new instructional focus — Blended Learning. This transition has required teachers not only to rethink their teaching practices and the way they approach instruction, but also to find new ways to facilitate learning experiences that allow their students to be innovative stewards of technology. This team has done this with flair! The Team Members are:
Among the many accolades that they all received, one individual said “This team has led the regime to implement blended learning with fervor at Shuford Elementary School. Each of these teachers has been a pioneer, eager to try new things, and they have each worked to begin transforming their curriculum and teaching with fidelity.”
Another note shared that “These ladies are a testament to what is truly possible when Blended Learning is done right, and I am watching them with eager anticipation to see how their leadership in the Blended Learning initiative shines next at Shuford Elementary.”
On behalf of N-CCS, we congratulate the 2bd Grade Team at Shuford Elementary on their most deserved recognition. The work you do is valued by other leaders, teachers and students district-wide!
