Spelling Bee Winners


Seven Loudon County students participated in the Spelling Bee on November 18 at Fort Loudoun Middle School.   Rachel Scheffer of North Middle School edged out  Elijah Butler (4th grade) from Highland Park.  Rachel now puts herself in the rare class of "repeat champion."  That is an extremely difficult feat as these students must win their school competition prior to getting to the county level.  Congratulations to these students for being school champions and representing their school with class at the Loudon County Spelling Bee:

Tyson Porcella - Eaton
Brayden Kiser - Fort Loudoun
Elijah Butler - Highland Park
Alexia Venearo - Loudon Elem.
Rachel Scheffer - North (CHAMPION)

Loudon County Educators Visit Shanghai, China





From November 1-8, 2014, a group of school principals, assistant principals, instructional leaders from Knox and Loudon school and researchers from Vanderbilt’s Peabody College went to Shanghai to study and observe the TPEG practices in China.  Among the 15 participants, three principals had been to Shanghai with the first cohort of principals, 12 other members were new to the project. 

During their one-week visit to Shanghai, Tennessee educators visited six schools (two secondary and four elementary) from the Minhang District. Among the schools, half of them have significant number of students from low SES and rural migrant workers’ families, one with 100% migrant children and only receives partial government funding.  At each school, the Tennessee educators observed how teachers in Shanghai conduct joint lesson planning, classroom observations, and giving peer feedback. They also learned about the multifaceted and multilevel professional development structure and instructional support for teacher collaboration within and across schools and at the district level.  Their visit culminated in a half-day workshop at East China Normal University, where Tennessee and Shanghai principals discussed the key strategies and challenges of constructing and sustaining productive communities of practice .
