MHS at the RCA!

December 13, 2019

Teachers from Mossy Head School made a trip to the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta for the RCA Experience. The RCA Experience is "an interactive, dynamic learning experience where educators observe live classes in action and attend workshops that focus on improving student engagement, academic rigor, and creating a climate and culture for success" (RCA.com). The teachers were able to observe and learn from some of the most innovative and progressive educators of our time including, Micheal Bonner, Kim Bearden, and Ron Clark. It was a truly once in a life time professional development experience.
