We have had such a great start. It is amazing to see the growth of everyone in just a few weeks. The Kindergartners are showing how they have learned to follow school rules, the 1st and 2nd graders are showing how they can find books and type in their own numbers, the 3rd and 4th graders are using the media center to support their learning and the 5th graders are emerging as such strong leaders in our school.
One of my favorite things about my job, is the chance to work with every student and to see them grow throughout their years here at Dowell.
There are many changes in the works for our media center. We are working towards becoming a Learning Commons. This is an exciting change that will make this space even more useful for learning and teaching. For right now, we are making the space easy a flexible space that is easy to manipulate, we are inviting teachers to think of this space and of Mrs. Arnold and I as extensions to their classrooms and find ways that we can support their teaching.
