    Welcome to Douglas!
     
    As the instructional leader of Douglas Creative Arts and Science Magnet Elementary School, it is my responsibility to build capacity in my staff with their cross-curricular lesson integration. Our staff development and resources are geared toward student mastery of standards through the arts and sciences. We must provide our students with innovative and creative ways to access the standards and keep them engaged in relevant work.  The guiding skills of this work are collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking. As the demands and circumstances of the world around us change, we must adjust our approach to prepare our students for the dynamic future ahead of them.As the instructional leader of Douglas Creative Arts and Science Magnet Elementary School, it is my responsibility to build capacity in my staff with their cross-curricular lesson integration.
