  • Real Classroom Communities are more than just look. Real communities flourish when we bring together the voices, hearts, and souls of the people who inhabit them. When our vision of community expands to create a culture and climate for thinking - when rigor, inquiry, and intimacy become key components of our definition - it’s essential that we work first to build genuine relationships, establish mutual trust, and create working literate environments.
