PLUSS Professional Development

Faculty at Friends School meet monthly first thing in the morning for faculty and staff led professional development and cross-divisional coordination (PLUSS day Wednesdays). We’re lucky to have a¬†wonderful resource in Dr. Hilgartner, who led a group of faculty on a great tour of campus. Here we learn about local geology in his classroom before heading outside.

And here we are at the Fallen Tree Gardens, inspecting various fungi and lichens:

A big thanks to Bill Hilgartner for sharing his knowledge, to the twelve faculty who attended, and to the red-shouldered hawk who joined us late on the walk (but who refused to stay in focus for any of our photos).
