By Thomas Santo, Principal, Zane North Elementary School, Collingswood, NJ Zane North Elementary School in Collingswood, NJ, wanted to send some uplifting news to the school community but not by email. This news would have a different twist. It would come in person via a “Caravan of Compassion.” With the Superintendent Oswald’s support, Principal Santo partnered with Mrs. Jakimiak, fourth grade teacher, to organize a rolling car parade as a sign of appreciation to the Zane community. The Collingswood Chief of Police created a transportation route and offered a police patrol. Zane North staff adhered to the CDC guidelines and did not leave their cars at any ...

STEM

PREPARING THE STUDENTS FOR THE “T” JOBS Today I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful training session at NJIT on Forensics and Digital Forensics. I had the opportunity to network with different schools who have STEM programs with multiple pathways in their schools. Upon reflecting there are two questions that emerged out of the discussions. How can we develop teacher capacity to teach STEM courses? There is lack of personnel and professional development in the schools that can teach STEM courses. There is a need to design STEM teacher education program at the college level. How can we help our students ready for the technology jobs while ...

Attended today's workshop designed to provide a refresher to L2L mentors on the L2L website and brush us up on new advances in technology. How great! We were many - about 40 or so - and we were busy ! For me, my greatest take away was learning how to add Giphys to "jazz up" our Slides or Ppts ( https://giphy.com ). The greatest feeling: collaborating in a real learning community with the wonderful people who mentor for L2L. Thank you to our presenters Jim and Rob!!!!  Our departing question: can we do it again?
