On Tuesday December 8th, veteran school change agent, Michelle Swanson, led the entire Oaklea staff through a visioning process of a new Oaklea. How can the arts and creative expression help to support change in student engagement, academic achievement, and contribute to a more holistic approach to education? These are just some of the questions posed to staff as they embark on school-wide transformation.
“The ArtCore training was one of the most meaningful professional activity half days I have been involved in during my 16 years in education. It was a wonderful morning, giving us a genuine opportunity to collaborate and share our hopes for the near future at Oaklea.”
– Brian Young, Principal of Oaklea Middle School
