Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!
Thanks for joining, Kim. And thanks for your interest in The 9th Grade Opportunity. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. I regularly work with schools around the country on their Freshman Transition needs and would love to assist you.
Hi, everyone. Thank you for approving my membership.
A little bit about me. I'm the 9th grade lead teacher at a public charter school in Southfield, MI. I am starting a Freshman Transition program this fall, with the full support of my administration. Looking forward to working with and learning from all of you.
I did see that, Scott. I'm actually planning on sending the link to my principal with a request that she get copies for our 9th grade team, including our 9th grade special education teacher and our social worker/counselors. I look forward to exploring the website - I've been looking for a resource like this, and know that it will be extremely helpful. Thanks!
Hello! My name is Lisa Munoz and I am a first year teacher at MaCES in Maywood, CA. I have been looking into different resources to help me develop as a teacher and since I work with Freshman I thought this would be a great resource to look into. I currently teach Biology and Marine Biology but we are a brand new school and are expanding our curriculum soon. I just wanted to say so far from what I have seen this is an amazing approach and I'll have to spend much more time looking into it in the near future.
Welcome aboard, Lisa. Let me know if I can do to help you out. I work with high schools around the country helping them make plans to support their freshmen. Please let me know if you have any questions. You also might want to check out the book The Ninth Grade opportunity that I co-wrote. There is a link to it on the main page.
