Little Falls Community Schools was well represented at the National Conference on Digital Convergence this weekend, with two staff members honored as finalists for national awards. Cheryl Moore, kindergarten teacher at Lindbergh Elementary, and Wade Mathers, Middle School Principal, received national recognition at the closing banquet in front of over 400 educators from across the country. Earlier in the day both Cheryl and Wade were presenters on panels in sessions that were standing room only.
Cheryl earned the national Personalized Learning Classroom of the Year award for her work towards reinventing and personalizing her Kindergarten classroom at Lindbergh Elementary, providing her five and six-year old students incredible opportunities towards owning and managing their own learning.
Wade was one of three national finalists for the Change Management Leader of the Year award. Although Wade did not win the overall award, the work towards developing student-centered classrooms at Little Falls Community Middle School created much interest at the conference.
It’s a great day to be a Flyer!
