Bethlehem Elementary is on a journey to create an engaging, personalized learning atmosphere for all our students. Our teachers are dedicated to providing an education that will serve our students in the 21st Century where we all need to communicate, think critically, collaborate, and become creative, innovative problem solvers.
Teachers used to stand at the front of the class, lecturing, and leading lessons. Education was very teacher centered. Students today are no longer engaged in a “sit and get” type of classroom. As educators, we must find ways to engage, extend and enhance student learning. We want to create opportunities for deep learning where students think, learn, work, communicate, collaborate, and contribute. By giving students opportunities for hands- on experiences, solving complex problems, and connecting their learning to future college and careers goals we know they will be prepared for any challenge that is set before them.
