I loved your videoes ; especially 'A School Grows its Own Teachers'.... Randy is my son! :)
Great to see him in a place where he can contribute and bring the best of himself to his students!
Our school here in Florida has Academies - not quite up to the project based curriculum as we'd like - but getting there. I teach biology in the Medical Academy - and students benefit from the interdisciplinery approach - although we still must reach those 'benchmarks' and cover a prescribed curriculum. I've been out there to HTH and met the kids.. and yes, they are a wonderful group - so impressed by their poise and ease in talking about their projects.. enthusiasm is evident! Keep up the great work!
