During the school year, they guide learning from the front of the classroom. But this summer, five Gaston County Schools teachers are stepping into the role of students so they will have more to offer their classes this fall. In the mountains of Colorado and along the Chattanooga River in Georgia, the teachers are learning about current issues in environmental research and education.
The classic Broadway show “Anything Goes” came to Stuart W. Cramer High School last weekend (July 17-19), but this wasn’t just another high school musical. For five weeks, the cast of students from eight different Gaston County schools were trained by a group of talented theater professionals through the first-ever Gaston STAGE program.
Three teachers are joining education leaders from across the country and around the world in Washington, D.C. this week where they will learn new and innovative ways to use technology in the classroom. They are representing Gaston County Schools at the Discovery Education Network Summer Institute.
If you’re looking to make some money in the stock market, you may want to check with a group of students at Highland School of Technology. A team of five students earned fifth place in the nation in the Capitol Hill Challenge investment competition that involved more than 15,000 students from 742 schools across the country.
