Successful Public and School Collaboration



Over the past few years my school partner and I have been getting the word out about our successful relationship. Marge Loch-Wouters asked me to share some tips for her amazing class. So Joanne and I got together for a few minutes…here’s a quick video with Cliff Notes on how to get started and what seems to work best for us:

Excuse the coughing at the end. We had just done a Kindergarten Social Program for a packed room of about 80 at 10:30 a.m. At noon we did a welcome program for the New Teacher Orientation. Directly after that we taped this segment (Twice. The first time we were nearly done and were attacked by a gigantic spider. I’m taking about Aragog big!). And since I’m very basic with the video editing the coughing stays. Haha! We’re off to lunch finally at 2 p.m.!


Additional ideas on mentioned programs:
