TSSD- a Bright Spot in Tennessee
TSSD is highlighted in this state publication, “Accelerating TN Tour 2021: Bright Spots Guide”. Commissioner Schwinn brought a delegation to TRMS this Summer to view our Summer Learing Loss Camp and came away impressed. Click here and scroll to page 16 to see the write-up!
While here, they also visited Peabody and were shown a plan for the library STEM project which is currently underway! We hope to have them visit again upon completion of that project in January, 2022.
TSSD congratulates our own Bryce Agee on her selection as the Tennessee Science Teachers Association (TSTA) SCIENCE EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR for grades 5-8! This is a well deserved honor for Bryce, as she is leading the way for STEM at TRMS.
Way to go Bryce!
TSSD, as well as schools across Tennessee and the country, are currently dealing with a social media issue and are asking for you to please deal with this at home as you see fit.
