As the school year came to an end last June, South View Middle School (SVMS) art teacher Kathleen Hartman and her colleague, Betsy Madson, began looking for ideas for the 2013 winter play. Since the play would be performed in December, they wanted to follow a holiday theme, but they also wanted to ensure it was a theme to which everyone could relate. The more they searched, the more discouraged they became.
Most people only fantasize of writing a book, but Edina High School (EHS) senior Rebecca Ohaeri is about to accomplish a life-long dream of becoming a published author. By mid-December, Ohaeri’s first novel, Two Broken Birds, will have become a reality and will be available for purchase online through Amazon and GoodReads.
On December 17, the statewide technology collaborative, TIES, will honor exemplary teachers in technology in the opening session of its 2013 TIES Annual Conference. Edina Public Schools is proud to celebrate two of its own leaders in technology.
