  • Stress and the Middle School Student

    Michael Gonzalez
    Isn’t it ironic that we are talking about stress and the Middle School student? Unfortunately, as educational requirements become more stringent in the middle and upper levels, students everywhere experience considerable school stress.

  • Honoring Our Baptismal Covenant

    Mike Gonzalez
    The final promise of the Episcopal Baptismal Covenant propels us into the world to celebrate and serve.  I am fond of how the Episcopal Church frames this sacrament because it at once seals the individual’s relationship with God and galvanizes the community’s mission to serve God in all people.

    What is active learning? Active learning is a process whereby students “engage” in activities, such as reading, writing, discussion, and problem solving that promotes analysis and evaluation of class content.

    The world is moving at a rate not experienced before and parents are presented with new and daunting obstacles as they look to guide and support their children.

  • A Paradigm Shift for Middle School Students

    Mike Gonzalez
    Are you an active learner? Are you a passive learner? Who is the most important person in the educational process? Are you setting both personal and academic goals? These are a few of the many questions being asked of the 7th and 8th grade students by their Middle School Advisors in weekly meetings designed to prepare for our new “norm” of parent-teacher communication, student-led conferences. These conferences will engage the students in new ways and will lead to them being more responsible and accountable for their own educational journey.
