Teacher Spotlight — Michelle Hawkins Teacher Spotlight — Michelle Hawkins

Carrollton, Ky. — September 18, 2017 — At the center of Carroll County Middle School, where the original building meets the new addition, sits Michelle Hawkins’s Project Lead the Way classroom.

From the hallway, anyone can see inside, through a row of chest-high windows or through the classroom’s sliding glass doors.

When students are not in the room, it looks like a workshop in a high-end manufacturing facility. Stools sit by sturdy worktables, complete with industrial power supplies hanging from the ceiling.

When students are in the room, it looks even more like a workshop in a high-end manufacturing facility — think safety goggles, schematic drawings and machine prototypes.

“One thing I never hear is ‘When are we going to use this?’” Hawkins said.

 

A message from Dr. Livingood about the Aug. 21 eclipse

In the Carroll County School District, we want to embrace Monday’s solar eclipse as a learning opportunity for our students. However, we understand that there are safety concerns, so we have taken steps to ensure that our students can view the eclipse under our supervision and with proper safety equipment:

  • We have secured eclipse glasses for all of our students from a NASA-approved vendor.
  • We have extended the school day on Monday by 30 minutes.
  • For students to view the eclipse, their parents or guardians must sign and return a permission form before the eclipse begins.
  • We respect the right of parents and guardians to prevent their children from directly viewing the eclipse. However, for students who must remain indoors during the eclipse, we will be streaming the eclipse live so that they can view it via our projection equipment.

We expect that our students will have a safe and memorable learning experience during the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.

Dr. Ron Livingood

Interim Superintendent

Carroll County School District
