Mrs. Walker, Norge Reading Specialist, has opened her room in the mornings and afternoons for students to come and talk about Cleo Edison Oliver Playground Millionaire, the book the whole school is reading as part of the Coastal Virginia Reads One Book program. At the Book Cafe, students are prompted with questions from the previous night’s reading but then can take the discussion wherever their excitement leads them!
For the first time, WJCC is honoring a “Rookie Teacher of the Year” from all schools who submit a candidate nomination. To represent Norge, Ms. Matthews has selected Kate Roessler as our Rookie Teacher of the Year. Though this is her first year teaching, she has quickly become a team player, incorporating student choice, engaging instructional strategies and powerful relationships into her class, making her an excellent choice! Congratulations, Mrs. Roessler!
