Inspiring students. Innovative learning spaces. Strong and supportive leadership. Educators that truly connect with and care for kids. This school visit left me with a renewed sense of what is possible in education.
We often hear of the need to redesign schools to support modern learning environments, and yes, we should. But how often does a school’s investment in these spaces clearly support and enable a shift towards innovative, student-centered practices? Not so much. That is why when I had the chance to visit Montour Public Schools last Spring, I jumped at the opportunity.
