On the topic of Relationships!
Jeremy Stewart (@J_Stew314) is an assistant principal at College View High School in College Station ISD, College Station, TX. Jeremy earned his Masters of Education from Sam Houston State University and co-created a district-wide Twitter chat, #CSISDchat, this past fall with @aaron_hogan. He has served in multiple capacities; elementary and middle school special education teacher, TAP mentor teacher, CPI coordinator, SEL team leader, and Coaching Crew team member. He aspires to be a campus principal and eventually a superintendent.
One of the main focuses Jeremy has for the students and staff at College View High School is to increase the opportunities to practice creativity and question “why do we do what we do?”. Inspired by Dave Burgess’ (@BurgessDave) book, “Teach Like a Pirate.”, Jeremy continually asks his colleagues, “If our students did not have to be at school, would they continue to come?”
One of the ways Jeremy’s team is answering this question is by completely overhauling their instructional practices by implementing #geniushour campus-wide and moving to a #BlendEd instructional model with #PBL, #Flipped, and a mixture of face-to-face and online instruction. Furthermore, he also connects his students with local professionals in the community by bringing them in to share what education and skills are required to reach their career goals.
