I am truly honored and excited to join this new community of learners as your new Principal. As we embark on this journey together, I want to begin the year by extending the warmest of welcomes to each and every one of you. The foundation of a successful school is built upon a partnership between students, families, community and staff. Together, we will foster an environment where every child is valued, supported and inspired to learn and grow. It is my belief that by working collaboratively, sharing ideas and embracing the unique strengths of our diverse community, we will not only create a joyous and vibrant learning environment, but also prepare our students to lead a more socially just world. I am looking forward to connecting with all of you very soon!
Constructivism is the idea that meaningful knowledge is actively constructed rather than passively absorbed.
In a constructivist classroom, students are asked questions and invited to use what they already know to construct new ideas (creative) then test those ideas in context (science) in order to arrive at answers through experience and critical thinking.
At Bridger Creative Science School, teachers guide students through this practice of inquiry and discovery to promote curiosity, confidence, and connection— toward learning, toward themselves and each other, toward community— so that students may use these tools throughout their education and into adulthood.
