First, meet Cait. We're both doing the Kindergarten-co-teacher thing for the first time! Cait is enthusiastic about many things--- teaching, running, and nutrition to name a few. We both like to travel, and (how lovely?!) we're both twins! Can you tell how excited we are to get the year started?
Most schools like ours will name an advisory or classroom after the teacher's alma mater. Ruby Hill is different. Our classrooms are named after the schools where the very first class of STRIVE Prep students are currently enrolled.
What better way to set the tone for our students then pointing them in the direction of community members who have gone before?
We are (drum roll please)...
....Metropolitan State University! GO ROAD RUNNERS!
Cait's and my classroom is local, which is pretty fantastic. I'm picturing field trips and special guests and a whole lot of Roadrunner pride! Today we dropped by the Tivoli building to stock up on MSU swag. Kids come for orientation Saturday. We'll be ready.
