We have four new teachers on staff this year: Jenna Farrell will be teaching a 6/7 combination class, Jaime O’Brien will be teaching 7th grade, Alana Cumpston is our new RSP/RTI teacher, and Tom Lando is our new technology teacher. We welcome our new teachers to our Gerber community.
Common Core and CASPP
We will continue to implement the Common Core State Standards this year and prepare our students for the new on-line accountability system; the California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance (CASPP). The common core standards are not a new curriculum but a different way of teaching and learning. You may hear your child talking about working collaboratively with his/her peers and doing more talking and project work in class. This is to build children’s communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills; which are the heart of the new common core standards. These skills are going to be key for job seekers in the future.
