A team of teachers from Reynolds Elementary School was presented with the Syracuse University New York's College Team Award at the Nov. 20 Syracuse University football game.
Fourth-grade teacher Morgan Murray, special education teacher Megan Wrench and teaching assistant Tricia Herrmann were honored for their leadership and commitment, as well as for their positive impact and influence on their students.
This school year, the teachers are delivering instruction in a co-teaching classroom. In a co-teaching classroom, usually two teachers, one a general education teacher and one a special education teacher, collaborate to deliver instruction to all students in a classroom, decreasing the time that students with special needs have to leave the room for instruction in the core subjects - math, ELA, science and social studies.
"Morgan Murray, Megan Wrench and Tricia Herrmann have demonstrated a great collaborative effort as co-teachers in their fourth-grade classroom," said Olivia Cambs, principal of Reynolds Elementary School. "Their ability to cooperate and support each other's efforts has created a positive environment in their classroom, fostering student learning."
