Leaving on a Jetplane

Preschool teachers Lisa Hoke and Maureen Glaccum boarded an airplane to Utah last week to visit former TPS Head of School Sandy Dean at her home near Salt Lake City.

Maureen and Lisa visited four schools that Sandy is involved with, observing teachers in action in several newly formed Pre-K classrooms. After two full days of observation, Maureen, Sandy and Lisa met with the Utah teachers on Friday to share impressions of their visit and also to talk about the work we do here at TPS using “the Project Approach.”

Our TPS preschoolers were excited to hear all about the children Maureen and Lisa met and about the similarities and differences between schools in Utah and Philadelphia!
