Birch Meadow receives a visit from Secretary of Education - Paul Reville

Secretary Education of Education, Paul Reville, came to visit Birch Meadow on Thursday. The Secretary selected Birch Meadow due to the quality of instruction in our school related to technology integration. Superintendent of Schools, Dr. John Doherty; School Committee Member, Chuck Robinson; Principal, Eric Sprung; and a group of classroom teachers first met with the Secretary to share how technology has become part of the culture in Reading Public Schools and at Birch Meadow. Following the conversation, Secretary Reville visited classrooms to see how teachers use technology to teach the Common Core Standards. The town of Reading and Birch Meadow PTO provide the wonderful technology resources, while the teachers provide the quality of instruction highlighting the reasons for this visit. Please see pictures from his visit below. I have added a few additional photos on our Shutterfly site.
