The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination."
An Einstein quote is one of many strategically placed throughout the Kindergarten and 1st grade classroom of Mrs. Gamos. Fueled by empathy, passion, curiosity, and desire to see the potential of each student become reality is so evident in her class.
Mrs. Gamos was doing a phenomenal job balancing a combined class (Grade 4/5) at St Michael Academy (SMA). Due to staffing adjustments she displayed her veteran leadership by taking on the challenging opportunity to lead Kindergarten and 1st grade.
She did not miss a beat from the momentum she had last school year. She rejuvenated the Kindergarten classroom with a fresh sense of openness, functionality, and a health dose of FUN! Everything from the colors, furniture, and resources were replaced. Early posts on the schools Instagram and Facebook pages provided a high dose of likes and comments of praise. The students who get to call her class home for this school year simply 'Love It'.
Mrs. Gamos loves design and functional work spaces. Partnered along with her fellow teachers, she lead another overhaul of the school copy room. Everything was removed, repainted, and new furniture placed to match the theme, "When You're Here, You're Home". Check out the pictures!
We salute Mrs. Gamos in being an innovator in her field who loves to have fun and promote the power of imagination to our future leaders, her students.
