We are very excited to welcome Molly Brown as our new Lower School teacher! Molly inspired and impressed us during her candidate visit to Portfolio with her warmth, expertise, and the connections that she made with our students. Her demo lesson engaged our students in a hands-on, inquiry-based activity, and her conversations with us reflected her passion for experiential, maker-centered learning and teaching.
It was great to see how other people are taking on the same challenge of re-inventing K-12. The schools represented in the group have a lot of different approaches and focuses: some are just Middle School, one has an inter-generational element, some are urban, some are suburban, one is designed for home-schoolers...But our similarities far outweigh our differences. And our hope is that in coming together, we can collect our individual voices and form a movement, creating a shared vision and thus enabling a bigger impact.
