The Lower School pulled an April Fool’s prank on their students today by changing their teachers for the day.
The exchange was the idea of Lower School Head Kara Barbour, who thought it would be a fun way to build connections across grade levels and help teachers look at their own processes.
“We always ask students to step out of their comfort zones, and by asking our teachers to teach a different subject or grade level class, it allows them to see their work in a new light,” shared Kara Barbour. JK Teacher Amy Morrison says it’s also a fun way for teachers to reconnect with their former students.
“I walked into Ms. Hadskey’s class, and the students and I started cheering and hugging!” she shared. “So many familiar faces and even new faces! It’s been absolute pure joy to connect and reconnect with these kiddos.” While Morrison shared it was a special day, she has no plans to permanently become a third-grade teacher.
“ I can’t wait to get back to JK to love on my kiddos... I miss them already.”
