Brent’s 4 teaching partners….you see them in the hall, in classrooms, in the library and cafeteria, but what do they do? How are they helping our students this year?
Having been conceived as part of last year’s Strategic Plan and primarily funded by the PTA, the Brent teaching partner program started strong this year with four students from Trinity University’s School of Education joining Brent in August. Since then, these four educators (Taneika Blackwell, Leontia Collins, Shani Plummer, and Brittany Wilkerson) have been helping students who need more individual attention as they work toward getting and staying on grade level. Over the course of the day, the teaching partners interact with students in a variety of settings. For example, a teaching partner will work with a 4-person group of students on their multiplication skills using curriculum and tips from Mr. Mangiaracina. Later that same teaching partner will join a class during Writing to support any struggling writers. In addition to working in small groups and in the full classroom, teaching partners work one-on-one with students for quick lessons. [Read More]
