Bronxville Educators Present at Educational Leaders Conference

The Bronxville Promise integrates critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity into education. Bronxville school officials are featuring this innovative approach as a model for other teaching professionals at the EdLeader21 Conference in Dallas this week.

Bronxville School administrators and teachers are attending the Conference, which brings together educational leaders from across the country. They were invited to make a presentation in front of other district officials and discuss the lesson study process at the Bronxville Schools.

Director of Curriculum and Instruction Mara Koetke, Elementary Assistant Principal Adrienne Laitman and Elementary School Curriculum Leader Louise Lebrini will present the “Benefits of Lesson Study: A Professional Development Model for 21st Century Learning.” As part of the presentation, participants will Skype from Dallas into several Bronxville classrooms on Oct. 1.

“One of our goals is to consider how we assess the Bronxville Promise, which incorporates critical thinking, leadership, engage citizenship and innovation, and what instructional strategies are key to developing these skills in our students,” Koetke said.
