Press release from the Bristol Board of Education:
The Bristol Public Schools received commendations from the State Department of Education for the exemplary BEST [Beginning Educators Support and Training] portfolios submitted by Holly Caruso, kindergarten teacher at Mountain View School and Michelle LaVasseur, third grade teacher at South Side School. Beginning teachers in Connecticut must submit a portfolio demonstrating their understanding of teaching and learning as part of the BEST Program. Elementary teachers must create a portfolio in the teaching of literacy and mathematics that includes lesson plans, student work and the teacher’s reflection of how they could improve instruction based upon the work of their students. Mrs. Caruso and Mrs. LaVasseur have been asked to work with teachers and administrators in Connecticut new to the portfolio requirement and present their personal reflections on the process.
