On Friday, November 4th, Pioneer Ridge Middle School had the pleasure of hosting State Education Commissioner Dr. Brenda Cassellius and her cabinet. She is on a celebration tour of schools in Minnesota and as part of the Governor’s cabinet, will be sharing her experience back with lawmakers. We shared with Commisioner Casselius the journey of implementing personalized learning at PRMS.
Everyone was so excited and impressed by the learning they witnessed taking place. At one point Commissioner Casselius commented about personalized learning saying that she had only seen one other district close to (in her words) “this deep level of implementation,” The state’s chief academic officer commented on the excitement he was witnessing and our students were exceptional ambassadors for the district. “You are amazing educators; thank you for all you do.” They are well aware that we have implemented personalized learning across our building and that every student that walks through our doors is benefiting from the instruction we are providing them.
These visits are a reminder of what an honor it is to work with such a wonderful staff and student body. We were very proud to showcase all of the exciting things happening here at Pioneer Ridge!
