Started at The Common School:
Competing as a Strongwoman, learning more than three chords on my ukelele, exploring new places with my son
What brought you to The Common School?
When I moved to the area from California, I was searching for a progressive pre-K and elementary school for my son. When I came to the Open House and spent time talking with the students and teachers, it was made very clear that I not only wanted my son to come to The Common School, but that I wanted to, too!
Tell us about a favorite teaching moment at The Common School:
It’s not a specific moment, but rather a recurring theme: Whenever we have visiting experts come to campus or we go elsewhere on a field trip, the facilitators/experts are always surprised by the level of questioning, understanding and engagement our students show. It makes me proud of our students each and every time.
What do you like best about The Common School?
I have a true love for our in-depth study program that we implement throughout the grades. Being able to immerse ourselves in a topic for many weeks on end, led by the curiosity and questions of the students, results in some real rich and engaged learning.
