Spring Lake Park High School students in the Business and Innovation class stepped into the Shark Tank last week to pitch their unique business ideas. With ideas like cleats that can be used for multiples sports, an LGBT+ friendly coffee shop, full-sized skincare subscription box and a transportation company for unused food, it was hard for judges to choose a winner.
Personalized Learning in Action
"I personalize learning through technology in order to meet their unique goals, interests and needs of each of my students."
Students are becoming inventors, artists and creators as part of their learning in the “How to Make Almost Anything” course at Spring Lake Park High School (SLPHS).
"By learning Spanish this way, we can use it in real-life such as in other countries or when meeting someone new. We don’t just learn the language in this class, we are learning about different cultures and people." -Westwood eighth grader Danielle Davis
"The best part of my day is definitely seeing the kids reach that moment of discovery when their project really starts coming together, or when they discover a unique way to solve a particularly stubborn problem."
"I strive to create meaningful and engaging lessons where students are able to see themselves as successful lifelong learners."
