As a novice teacher educated in the digital age, I entered education, and specifically Saint Cornelius Catholic School, at a time of whirlwind change. It is a part of the Lumen Christi Academies, a group of Catholic schools in the San Francisco Bay Area whose mission is to “nurture ethical scholars who will change the world” through active, personalized and student-led learning. The schools are undergoing transformations in how instruction will take place, beginning with the 2019-2020 school year.
Much of the changes center on shifting our culture and mindset from teacher-focused to student-centered learning.
