Representative Craig Fitzhugh visits East Side

Ms. Holmes’ 5th grade class at East Side Intermediate had a special “Educator for a Day,” State Representative Craig Fitzhugh.  The Educator for a Day event was part of a statewide effort by TEA to celebrate American Education Week.  Representative Fitzhugh engaged the students in a Common Core task using a KWL chart along with text on local, state, and federal government.  The task was asking the students to support things they wanted to learn about at each level of government. Representative Fitzhugh said he enjoyed working with the students as much as the students enjoyed having him teaching the class.  He said, “I really enjoyed being with the students, and you all are doing a great job!”
