Did you know our teachers all have a blog? Often they post about what students are learning in class, or post student work to celebrate. And sometimes they reflect on the work that we do. This post was written by Carly Rohrbacker, one of our fifth grade teachers. It's been a wild ride opening an amazing new campus. But if you look, there are lots of little things to celebrate! Read her post and leave a comment! What little things do you see that you love? (You can find our teacher blogs on the staff directory page on the Star website at star.natomascharter.org)
