HOT Schools Quote

"My responsibilities as a HOT school “revolutionary” include using HOT Strategies and labeling them as such to educate my students in the Common Core Era! This includes engaging every student, sharing the HOT APPROACH with my peers, assessing my students in authentic ways and asking my students to take creative risks.”
