In some cases, parents go out of their way to share their knowledge and expertise with students, via guest lessons! We were recently lucky enough to have two amazingly talented parents step in on the very same day to lead lessons in both the Visual and Culinary Arts.

Students view their technology resources as just that–resources; valuable tools that can be combined and used in creative, purposeful ways.
