Louisiana PLTW State Conference


The Primary School was well represented at the Louisiana Project Lead the Way Conference on Monday, April 3, at UNO. Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Englert, and six students represented the school at the conference. The fourth grade students who represented the school were Josh Adams, Matthew Bancroft, and Landon Crescioni. The third grade students were Jacob Guichard, Noah Olivio, and Peter Schissell.

Mrs. Lisa Englert, Lead Launch teacher at the Primary School, led three presentations at the conference. Her first presentation addressed Launch implementation in a self-contained classroom vs. PLTW-specific classrooms. She also facilitated the Launch Roundtable discussion. Mrs. Englert was honored at the conference as a Louisiana PLTW Outstanding Teacher.

Mrs. Englert along with Mrs. Baker and the six students were invited to lead the Launch 101 session. In this session the students shared their experiences in their PLTW classes. The boys did an amazing job interacting with the group of educators and business partners who attended the session. In addition to participating in the Launch 101 session, the students participated in the Poster Session at the conference.
