Mrs. Peck attended the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teacher's Academy in New York this past week. The week focused on hands on training for teaching math and science to 3rd through 5th graders and all expenses were paid. This is her reaction to the experience.
"I graduated! Attention to all my teacher friends: You MUST apply for this teacher academy! Go to sendmyteacher.com. It has been the absolute best professional development I've ever experienced. I am still in shock that I was chosen as 1 of the 154 out of over 1500 who applied. So, don't think that you won't get it, because you have the same chance as anyone else. This week has changed my thinking as a teacher. Thanks to Elena Reyes-Lovins for sharing the news of this opportunity. Thanks to Phil and Amy Mickelson, ExxonMobil, NSTA, and Math Solutions!"
Great job Mrs. Peck for representing Meadow Park Elementary and NLRSD in the Big Apple!
