Getting to Know Your MCSS Board
Summer Spotlight: P. J. Wiggin
School/Organization: St. Paul Preparatory School, St. Paul, MN.
Position: High School Social Studies Teacher at an international school in downtown St. Paul.
Social Studies Passion: Economics.
Challenges: I work primarily with foreign exchange students who are away from their families and struggling with different languages and culture shock. Many times I feel like a surrogate parent.
Favorite resource: www.teachingtraveling.com is a great blog that shares opportunities for teacher professional development around the U.S. and abroad.
What do you love about MCSS? I love that MCSS brings together teachers from all of the disciplines, to learn together to improve outcomes for both our students and our fellow educators.
