|Head of School's Message: Oct. 14|
Chandler’s Middle School Technology Integration Specialist, Jill Bergeron, said last week that her teaching methods would be very different today than they were five years ago when she stepped away from full-time history teaching to take charge of Chandler’s Middle School library before taking on her current role. Jill, a master teacher of adults and kids, spoke at a strategic planning sub-committee led by Chandler parent Doug McGuire that is looking into the future of teaching and learning at Chandler. The group is examining online teaching resources and ways in which teachers can grow what former trustee Peter Kaufman terms Chandler’s reputational endowment by showcasing their methods and content online.
