Where's Mrs. Ray's Classroom?
For my entire classroom teaching career, this site was fully developed and included a blog for parent news, student work galleries, calendars, newsletters, and more. It has been taken down. As of December 2017, I no longer have a classroom. I retired from that type of teaching and have a new angle in life.
LMy new angle includes advocating for changes in the way we do school in the United States of American. The "factory model," as many in the education industry call it, no longer is viable. We need to move toward new and better ways to teach to fully engage our students and make them ready for the job world. So what do I advocate for? Integrated STEM, girls and women in STEM, blended learning, and personalized learning all top my list. Of course integrated STEM is based on project- and problem-based learning and is meant to replace entire school curriculums!
To learn more about my new initiatives, you can follow my new blog, which should be up and running in March 2019. Hope to see you there, as commenting will be open.
