Ms. Schramm, the Talented and Gifted Teacher at Leila P. Cowart Elementary, is this month’s SEL Guiding Principles Superstar for Engagement. Ms. Schramm has intentionally designed her classroom to promote student engagement which drives the students learning experience. With her rich light, attractive decorations and authentic work done by students, she ensures a positive and interactive classroom. The students also share this space with living organisms such as herbs, a bunny, and fish which makes learning fun. On any given day you will see children working collaboratively on classroom projects, conducting research or presenting their hard work. A culture of empowerment, voice, and critical thinking encourages everyone to learn with and from each other. Let’s celebrate Ms. Schramm as an exemplary teacher who promotes student engagement!
