Barge makes the three-day travel to various school districts every month. The current round of visits will conclude Friday after stopping by Greene, McDuffie, Morgan and Taliaferro counties.
“To hear students verbalize the level of vocabulary they’re at is amazing. I heard one kindergarten student say that if you take two trapezoids and put them together you get a hexagon; that’s not language I was using when I was in kindergarten. It’s evident teachers are teaching the Common Core standards,” Braziel said after Thursday’s tour. “We’re always excited to show off the great things in our classrooms. So often people don’t get to see the level of expertise teachers display. We’re appreciative of our teachers and students for the work they do on a daily basis.”
