My Day At Fox Hill

Camera Roll-113

One of the fun parts of my new position this year has been the opportunity to visit all of the other schools in Burlington.  Each time I have the chance to see what students and teachers are up to I am left with an extremely positive feeling. It is so great to be able to see all of the wonderful things happening across the district!  In fact, I have set a goal for the remainder of the school year to try to spend a full day in an elementary school each week.

This past week, I spent a day at Fox Hill and had the opportunity to sit in with a number of classes. Check out some of the pictures below. Thanks to Principal Johnson and the staff and students for their warm welcome!

  1. Patrick,
    One of the things I miss about my old job in SAU 16 was being able to visit schools, watch great teachers, and enjoy school and learning through the eyes of young children. Be sure to take advantage of those opportunities as much as possible. I never regretted leaving my office to visit classrooms, even if I knew work was piling up.

  2. Patrick,

    I'm with Tony...I encourage my Superintendent to get out of the SAU office as much as possible and to bring his laptop to the my library if he has to get work done...sort of like your office in the hallway back in the old days.
