Educators from Around the Bay (& the World) Visit Campus

The Makery team hosted a meetup of the Bay Area Maker Educators on Thursday, February 12, bringing teachers from around the region into the Burke's Makery to tinker and experiment with a variety of materials just like students do.
It was just one of several recent occasions where educators traveled to Burke's to check out what's happening in our classrooms. Others included:
  • A team of 10 from Four Seasons Art Education in Taipei, Taiwan;
  • Five from 'Iolani School in Hawaii;
  • Four from the Physical Education and Sports Teacher Academy in Singapore.
The guests all toured classrooms and learned more about a Burke's education. (Thanks to Mike Matthews for the photo!)
Burke's mission is to educate, encourage and empower girls. Our school combines academic excellence with an appreciation for childhood so that students thrive as learners, develop a strong sense of self, contribute to community, and fulfill their potential, now and throughout life.
