Governor Bill Haslam will be at Central Magnet School in Murfreesboro at 9:25 Wednesday morning (1/25/2017) to observe Dr. Kyle Prince's Algebra II class. The visit marks the governor's third stop in his "Capitol to the Classroom" tour visiting members of his Teacher Cabinet in their schools.
The Governor's Teacher Cabinet is a group of 17 teachers from across the state that meets with Haslam quarterly to provide real-time information from the classroom and feedback on policy considerations, including educator support and preparation, assessment, teacher evaluation, response to intervention (RTI) implementation and the state standards review process.
"Tennessee is the fastest improving state in the country thanks to the hard work of our teachers and students, and we've followed up the success we're seeing in the classroom by making record investments in our schools, including the largest investment ever without a tax increase," Haslam said. "We are asking more of our teachers and students, and they are delivering in a big way."
Haslam will meet with Rutherford County Schools Director Don Odom and Central Magnet School Principal Dr. John Ash before visiting Prince's class and touring the engineering and robotics classrooms at the school.
