Middle School Educational Partners
"All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors--in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver."
Educational Partners (EPs) help coordinate, facilitate, and model learning experiences for continuous improvement in the classroom, school and district. EPs are the liaisons between research and practice, helping educators learn to improve their practices in a reflective supportive setting, and they model continuous learning. EPs build relationships and serve as critical friends supporting all learning communities, and they assist and serve on leadership teams within the school for the district. EPs support educators by helping with the “how” and "what" of teaching by assisting teachers with instructional materials, tools, information, etc. to support classroom instruction. They also serve as co-planners, co-teachers, and feedback providers through coaching cycles.
