Hanover Middle School teachers and administrators are excited to have the opportunity to work closely this school year with Mr. Eric Sheninger. Mr. Sheninger, an associate partner with the International Center for Leadership in Education, is a well known author and an award-winning educator. Mr. Sheninger will visit Hanover Middle School several times throughout the year to provide professional development for teachers in an effort to improve instructional practices. Under the guidance of Mr. Sheninger, teachers and administrators will closely examine curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices through the nationally recognized Rigor and Relevance Framework. Use of this framework will support teachers by providing strategies and resources to facilitate deeper learning and incorporate active, real-world experiences into their lessons. We are looking forward to developing a strong partnership with Mr. Sheninger as we strive to make improvements to best meet the needs of our HMS students.
