As a teacher at Pike, I value the opportunity to explore a rich curriculum, from the science behind simple machines to the cultural traditions of México. I value the opportunity to create a community where I know the unique identities and passions of the children in my space. Teaching second grade isn't the most important thing I do — teaching children is. Julia Alexander, Grade 2 Teacher
The love of learning at Pike is infectious! All it takes is for one student to have an 'a-ha moment,' and the buzz of excitement becomes palpable throughout the room.Ed Santella, Grade 5 Teacher
I love bringing new ideas and approaches to my work with students and my peers. It's what drives my teaching and their learning. How can I present this topic more effectively? How can they dig deeper into that topic? It's exciting, and I think it makes learning more exciting for my students. Sharon Libront, Lower and Middle School Literacy Coach
At Pike, we challenge our kids to become flexible thinkers. My students impress me every day with their willingness to try new strategies, learn from their mistakes, and truly grow as learners. Carolyn Eliet, Grade 4 Teacher
