Welcome to The World of Ms. Z!


 It is the second quarter and we are off to an outstanding start!

I am so proud of the humanitarians you are all becoming! You have so much empathy and compassion for your fellow human beings! I wanted to share this video with all of you. I know I shared it in class, but it is worth watching more than once. Peace.





WEEKLY NEWS:

  • PLP and Enrichment= Busy and engaged students!
     This year we really decided to change up the schedule and to offer up classes and opportunities that we have never been able to in the past. We have decided to have a GROWTH MIND SET in terms of our scheduling and what we CAN do!  This change of thinking has opened the idea of student-centered Personal Learning Plans (PLP'S) and Enrichment work. 

    Students have taken part in learning inventories, learning style surveys, and Meyers Briggs assessments to see what kind of learners they are and what their interests are. After the pre-planning stage, students carefully wrote plans for their own work. Some students are learning languages online, while others are learning about future professions, and deep interests, such as art, music, sports, etc.

    It has been a learning curve for everyone, but a very successful and engaging one! We are over-joyed by the work that is being accomplished by our students! MES students definitely take pride in their learning and their ability to rise to high expectations is amazing!
