This school year has been like no other. As the year begins to wind down, we’re taking time to reflect on accomplishments as we plan for what’s next. Turns out, we have a lot to be proud of in this year of pandemic learning.
We have asked our graduating seniors to share their plans for the future, favorite experiences and what makes them Panther Proud. In the coming weeks, we will share student spotlights as we celebrate the Class of 2021.
"I love that our school has the big picture in mind and that I work with amazing people and I get to teach amazing kids."
"I try to personalize learning by letting my students know how important their identity is to me and that I want to see them for every part of who they are because they matter and are valued in our space. I constantly seek out opportunities to learn more about my students' cultures and where their family comes from."
I Personalize Learning by finding out what each student is like and getting on their level. I want them to know that school is a safe place where they can be themselves and where they are loved.
"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 am #SLPPantherProud because the Spring Lake Park School community works extremely hard and is very committed to creating the best learning experience for all of our students."
