She met with administrators and was prepared to speak to the school committee. She pursued this goal with maturity and respect for the process, and was ultimately successful in having a new Ceramics course added to the BHS Program of Studies.
Model Marauder – Staff
Ms. Fant is being recognized for her commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, as well as her creative and thoughtful approach to new technologies and teaching strategies.
Ms. Fant is a wonderful colleague, supportive in all of her interactions with students and colleagues. She offers amazing feedback about teaching and structures lessons that are creative, clear, and support student learning. She connects deeply and authentically with her students and works hard to meet their individual learning and personal needs. She is a leader in the English department, someone whom we all turn to for good ideas or listening. Ms. Fant has been a critical component of our move to the digital Google Classroom and Google Drive model, piloting programs and modeling them for other teachers. Additionally she has taken several thoughtful risks, in regards to teaching, such as her recent collaboration with other three other 12th grade ELA teachers to co-teach portions of the Senior Thesis.
