We have 70+ teachers at Ridgely, and because of my position, I am lucky enough to see lots of the great things during the shift. It is absolutely amazing to watch. In fact, I like to take pictures to document when I can. Today, I review my camera roll to find a great deal of evidence that illustrates the journey. Let me share a description of the types of things I’ve captured as we move from traditional instruction to responsive instruction.
