Blog Contributor and Schedule
Currently, Mary Wade is our main writer for this blog. She taught for 4 years in a PYP school in Utah, and is now home with her young children until she returns to the classroom (read more about that story here). She loves to contribute to the classroom any way she can, from PTA volunteering to running PD sessions at her old school. It makes her day to hear about classroom applications of ideas from this blog, so be sure to connect with her on Twitter and/or leave an occasional comment. Her current blog schedule is as follows:
Mondays: Inspiring Inquiry
Fridays: Learning Through Reflecting
To receive updates for just one or more of the above categories, customize your subscription preferences here.
We also run a scholarship through this website, sponsored by Honors Graduation. If you are a high school senior or a school counselor, make sure your subscription preferences are set to receive scholarship updates, and follow us on Instagram where our scholarship team will post tips and examples of our own community improvement projects.
