Teachers Learning from Students!

13 Teachers from PAML attended the Middle Grades Institute at UVM this week!  We were the school with the most participation - which is impressive as there are middle schools from all around the state.  The photo below is one shot of when we had students join us for a bit so they could critique some of the work we have done so far.  Getting these students in the room helped us refine our thinking and really hear the voice of the students!  The work this week ranged from creating portfolio templates for our students to the beginnings of conversations about Personal Learning Plans, which are required for every 7th and 9th grader starting during the school year 2015-16.  We got a lot of work done, and are committed more than ever to the great students at PAML!
is getting advice from the students who joined us on Wednesday.
