Congratulations to our very own Mrs. Baldwin (Grade 4 Teacher) for being selected as our SPOTLIGHT teacher. She was honored at the Board of Education meeting on February 4th, 2019. She was alongside five of her fourth grade students who modeled accountable talk for members to watch. Both Mrs. Baldwin and her students did an outstanding job.
