Mossy Head School and West DeFuniak Elementary teachers attended “Instructional Strategies for ALL Learners” with teacher and author Jodi O’Meara. Teachers learned new strategies for implementing differentiated instruction within the classroom and planning instruction with intentionality to build conceptual understanding. The day provided the two schools an additional opportunity to collaborate and share instructional practices to meet students’ needs. Submitted by Elizabeth Gaither.
