Greetings from the Director of Studies!
I'd like to share with you a bit more about how this new role at Park School will enhance the learning experiences of our students. As Director of Studies, I coordinate the curriculum of all content areas throughout the K-12 experience. Examining the scope and sequence of content areas ensures that students are seamlessly acquiring the necessary skills and concepts in a developmentally appropriate manner. In addition, having a 'bird's eye view' of all the content areas allows me to identify opportunities for cross-curricular learning and connect faculty to one another for collaboration across content areas and grade-levels. Finally, as we are all life-long learners, I coordinate faculty support and professional development.
So what can you expect from this new blog?
From the bungalow to theater to pond, learning can take many forms and happen in many locations on Park's campus. Often these moments go unseen by the wider community, even if you have a student at Park! I hope to share in this space glimpses of the different learning that happens constantly on our campus. From students to faculty, we are all life-long learners and you'll have a chance to share in our learning journeys here!
