Trailblazer teachers and staff hold a vital role in developing school reform, and we are grateful for their innovation, commitment, and dedication to our network! This month we are featuring a Trailblazing Teacher from CICS Prairie.
This month's Trailblazer is the epitome of growth mindset. She is consistently pushing her instructional and community-building practice to be innovative and inclusive of all children. This Trailblazer is leading the way in personalized learning through systems she devised focused on competency-based progression, integration of flexible seating in her learning environment, and by the consistent incorporation of Responsive Classroom approaches to building a strong classroom culture and community. Her classroom is reflective of student agency and student ownership of learning, and her personalized and innovative approach to education helps her kindergarteners achieve access to education at their zones of proximal development. Her students are prepared by the end of kindergarten, and poised for higher success rates as they progress through elementary school!
The students and staff at CICS Prairie are so fortunate to have this Trailblazer leading and teaching alongside them. Please join us in congratulating this month's Trailblazing Teacher, Ms. Kimeon Cruikshank!
