This month, we are thrilled to name Jillian Freeman as our May Graider of the Month. We are so proud of all of our wonderful Graiders, but I have a hunch this bright and passionate young women might just end up changing the world one day.
While writing has become a critical skill for my generation (we spend ⅓ of our time at work writing emails), some schools have been slow to adopt new technology in their writing programs. While the usefulness of electronic devices in the classroom can be debated, the impact of technology on writing in the real world cannot. If we hope to prepare the next generation of students for an increasingly competitive global workforce, technology must be at the front and center of our teaching.
Micah is a freshman at the University of Chicago. In addition to taking classes for her economics and history double-major, Micah serves as a teaching assistant at a Chicago Public School near campus and works part-time as a Graider.
This month, we are thrilled to name Dane Hixon as our March Graider of the Month. Dane is a perfect example of someone who was able to take feedback and coaching from our team and use it to quickly become an exceptionally talented Graider. We are so grateful for his ability to receive and give highly effective feedback; and we’re excited to celebrate his work!
It’s a good thing Jamie likes a challenging climb! She is pursuing a Master's in Elementary Education at Boston University - student teaching by day, going to class by night, and working as a Graider in between.
