This is a blog written about Byrne Creek last year after a team from Byrne went to accept the ASCD Whole Child: Vision in Action award in Philadelphia. Check it out. The author Diana Laufenberg offered our team a tour of her school the Science Learning Academy, which is a project based learning charter school in Philadelphia that holds inquiry based learning at it’s heart. Today Diana came to Byrne Creek for a visit.
Diana’s visit was a rare and welcome opportunity to reflect, share best practice, talk, think, share and observe our school in action through the eyes of a guest educator. This sort of opportunity is powerful. I wish that all of our Byrne Creek teachers could have had the opportunity to tour the school with Diana today!
It allowed me the chance to pause for a few hours and reflect on what we are doing very well at Byrne Creek (building attachment and strong relationship throughout our system and adapting our programs to meet the needs of our diverse learners) and to dream ahead to what is possible in the future for Byrne Creek and the educational system in BC in general. Thank you for stopping by Dianna! We hope to see you again soon.
