Distinctive Schools will be spotlighting and featuring trailblazer educators across our network. As our schools work to personalize education, trailblazer teachers and staff hold a vital role in developing school reform. “Those who take the first steps in restructuring are trailblazers, for they are willing to go –in terms understood by Star Trek fans –without maps to places where no person has gone before them, without the benefit of empirically based models…” (Schlechty 47). We will focus on highlighting the innovative work happening with personalized learning and the outstanding staff commitment to our mission and organization.
Please join us in congratulating Ms. Holton for being our first Featured Trailblazer!
