Rationale: 

Instruction Partners is an organization that facilitates educator learning across Tennessee.  For the past couple of summers, it has held professional development boot camps during the summer.  This year, the following members of the Murfreesboro City Schools family went through a rigorous selection process and were chosen to teach sessions at the various boot camps being held across the state:  Sonya Cox, Ginger Hazelbaker, Gail Boyd, and Kenecia Sullivan were chosen to lead math sessions; Cherry Ross was chosen as the lead in informational text; and Taylor Brown was selected to lead English Language Arts sessions.   In addition, this year, Murfreesboro City Schools applied and was chosen to host one session of the boot camps.  So last week, Tuesday through Friday, Overall Creek welcomed about 170 teachers each day from across the state.  Media Specialist Christy Honey was the lead from Overall and made all of the logistical arrangements, and she was assisted tremendously by Angi Tremmel.  Thank you teacher leaders!  And thank you Overall Creek!
