"It's very powerful when a child actually knows who they are and where they are in the assessment process - and what they can do to not only improve their performance, but also celebrate where they are today. And that really - for me - is inspiring a passion for learning."
"Their thirst for knowledge is insatiable."
"I know what I can improve on, I know what I've done well."
“We will model speed, we spot model acceleration, we may even model the coordinate system on the floor with our bodies (because) kids like to get out of their seats.”
"Whitby allows children to be themselves."
"Our assessments are more frequent - and yet not as rote in nature. They're about learning, they're about applying, they're about communicating."
"It's a time when students put together all they've learned through their journey."
"For summative assessments you get a special reflection...what you've improved on, what you thought you did well, what you learned as a learner."
