Mrs. Lopez Featured on The Teaching Channel
Congratulations to Mrs. Heather Lopez whose Kindergarten lessons (from last year, Mrs. Lopez currently teaches second grade) were recently featured on The Teaching Channel! The Teaching Channel was started by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as a network for teachers to share great ideas. A production company came to Fairmont last summer to film Mrs. Lopez teaching a C-V-C Phonemics lesson and a Counting Objects & Ordering Numbers lesson. Both lessons are now available on The Teaching Channel website, which has over 25,000 members, and the videos will air on the show The Teaching Channel Presents on PBS in the fall. We are so proud to have incredible teachers like Mrs. Lopez at our campus!
Please check out these great videos!
