SpotlightComments Off on Principal’s Corner: Joy and Education
Back to School Night It was great to see so many families at Back to School Night; however, we know that not all parents/guardians could attend. If you have questions/concerns please reach out to the teacher, and please do not wait until the first marking period is over which is Sept. 20. Teachers need some time to prepare for communicating with parents/guardians, so the sooner you reach out, the more effective the conversation will be.
Joy One of the OUSD values is joy and this year at Tech we are working on having a more joyous environment. As many of you know and experienced, last year was a difficult year and this year our staff is trying to have more fun. Some of our teachers have created an outdoor classroom while other teachers are focusing on pedagogy that brings out more joy in the classroom. Staff are also sharing with one another how they are bringing more joy into the classroom. Staci Ross-Morrison Principal Oakland Technical High School It is harder to hate up close.- Michelle Obama
