  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    As educators, we need to provide students with both the opportunities and the tools to discover and ignite their passions. This involves instilling in our students an openness to new ideas and experiences as well as a self-awareness to be in tune with the flames that are beginning to grow and those that need to be fanned. Providing this for every student means frequent assessment of our relationships with our students to ensure that we are constantly redirecting our attention to those who may have missed it. It also means making the most of our collaborations with colleagues to provide what is best for students throughout their entire high school experience.

  • A Teachable Moment

    My senior year of high school, my freshman math teacher handed me a textbook and told me that I could plan and teach an upcoming lesson for her freshman Geometry Honors class. I observed her class one day, planned my lesson, and the first day back from winter break she introduced me to her class as "Miss Grieco." It was so much fun and confirmed for me that teaching is what I was meant to pursue. I cannot imagine being so fulfilled in any other profession!
