Tell us about your idea

My idea is to create a Facebook group where community members can pick a Senior to celebrate and bring them gifts and/or surprise them.

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

I wish to leave testing in the past because I don't think it's a good measure of student abilities.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

I am a teach in Round Rock and I know we can make education better.

What region are you located in?

  • North America

Where are you located?

Austin Area

Hi Tiffanie.
I really like your idea. Ae you thinking of initiating it in your area? I love the surprise element to it!
I wonder if a FB group might also reach out to community members who are not using social media so they can also participate?
Also, what do you think about extending the idea to incorporate new students, those just entering primary, middle or high school, as a way to celebrate their first days too?

Hi Bettina Fliegel 

Actually, this idea was implemented in my community and it was such a fun and interesting time! I would like for us to consider ways to include community members that may not be on social media.

Nice! It is great to hear stories about joy at the moment!
Do you think any of the meet ups might lead to continued interactions?
