Pre­par­ing teach­ers and teacher as­sis­tants for the very di­verse class­rooms of to­day. The mod­ern class­room is rapidly evolv­ing. Classes are filled with English lan­guage learn­ers, chil­dren suf­fer­ing men­tal or phys­i­cal chal­lenges, and chil­dren who come to school hun­gry. We must also ad­dress how we will meet the grow­ing de­mand for ed­u­ca­tional as­sis­tants. Gabrielle John­son, 25

I would be in­ter­ested in dis­cussing the pos­si­bil­ity of of­fer­ing more op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents and staff to grow in faith, po­ten­tially through short re­treats. Ad­di­tion­ally, I think it’s im­por­tant to work for con­tin­ued ad­vance­ment in our district’s ap­proach to the needs of stu­dents from lower in­come fam­i­lies, to en­sure that all stu­dents have what they need to flour­ish.
