While I was at Franklin MS, I met Molly Bridenbaugh and her 7th grade history class. Students showed me how they were collaborators and communicators, by working together to review historical documents about Andrew Carnegie to determine what impact he had on American society.


I also learned that Ms. Bridenbaugh is an FCPS graduate and a second career teacher! We have been working so hard to recruit teachers #Back2Fairfax and we are so glad that Ms. Bridenbaugh found her true passion with our Fairfax family.


I also had a chance to visit with Mrs. Poole's Spanish class. I wanted to be sure they know how important it is to be a global citizen by committing to learn a second language.
