This week's Speaker is Tori Jones, Director, PRIME, Oakhill Day School. Her topic will be "Exciting Opportunities of Experiential Learning."
At the helm of PRIME is Tori Jones, who is eager to come in and bring this new program to life. Jones attended The University of Missouri, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences and pursued her Master's degree in Education at Johns Hopkins University. Jones has nine years of experience in education, ranging from teaching grades pre-k through 12th and serving as Montessori Director in Kansas City, MO. After moving between Missouri and Puerto Rico, Jones, and her family are excited to be back in Kansas City for good and look forward to building a life-long family with Oakhill Day School. "Students should be able to demonstrate learning, their success, and their accomplishments through another avenue besides number two pencils and bubble sheets," Jones said of the diverse curriculum and integrated experience programming she is developing for the PRIME program. As we learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, the current framework for education needs updating to meet the needs of the 21st-century student population.

We will be meeting in person this week at the Gallery, however a Zoom link for this meeting will be emailed to members who cannot attend in person. If you would like to visit as a guest, please email Executive Director Mandy Sheldon.
