The Piñon Panthers are ready for another exciting year as principal Jill Gonzales begins her fifth year at Piñon and serving students in education since 1995.
Gonzales and her staff rose to the challenge in excellence last year as they worked to implement several initiatives: the New Mexico Public Education Department’s Teacher Evaluation System, Common Core State Standards, PowerSchool grading system, and a new math adoption.
“In addition, we continued to participate in the Smithsonian/Department of Education’s Laser i3 inquiry-based science research project as well as participating as a control group in a national math research project,” said Gonzales. “Through it all, our teachers and staff always sought to put the academic, social and emotional needs of students first.”
There’s no doubt there, as the obvious energy, smiles and engagement is seen throughout the classrooms and at play.
Piñon had much to be proud of in the way of accomplishments the previous year. These included teachers who completed masters’ programs, National Board Certification and Dossiers, to new fun and innovative programs such as Readers Raise the Roof, Family Literacy Night, Piñon’s Variety Show, Hour of Code, Math and Science Night.
