Girls Varsity Tennis Off To A Good Season

Suffield Academy Girls Varsity Tennis versus Westover School, April 10, 2013

The girls continued their positive momentum with today’s win. Team shout out to Mr. Shanahan’s poem to inspire more appreciation for our goal of becoming mindful tennis players. Players were paying attention to their successes and using court errors as learning opportunities. https://digitalcrowsnest.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/what-is-a-good-definition-of-mindfulness-jon-kabat-zinn/#comments

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
