Laurel Mountain SEM

ENERGIZED.... That's how I felt as we left Laurel Mountain Elementary last Friday (in spite of the long drive down to Austin at the crack of dawn)!  It was such an eye-opening experience to see SEM "in action."

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll work on getting a video together to share our experience with you.  Until then, suffice it to say that the excitement on the kids' faces and the passion in the teachers' voices spoke volumes. 

It was also great to discuss the "nuts and bolts" with the campus principal and SEM coordinator.  Our teachers came armed with questions, and it really helped to speak with people who have been through the struggle of implementation.

Check out the pictures below....

Visiting with the Principal and getting ready to see the Clusters in action....

 It was the perfect weather for the Sports and Fitness Cluster to meet!

The First Aid Cluster was exploring different parts of the body.

The Lights, Camera, Action Cluster was adding final touches to student created movies.
