  My November 18 tour of the Linden school was magnificent. After last month’s tour at the Early Learning Center, it was just as impactful to be guided through to the staff and faculty working to educate our children at the Linden STEAM Academy, K-8 grade. Principal Ray lead myself, Superintendent Ligia and Committee member Sharyn through the classrooms and studies at the school today. We also met the K-4 principal Jost. I paid particular attention to the progress of both the new Honors program and the AEAP program for talented students. I needed clarification to compare and contrast how both programs are structured. Having gone to an Exam School myself during the 1970’s in Boston, I am curious and partial to the AEAP structure. After chatting with the math coach and other instructors, it was immensely helpful to have an extended dialogue with the current K-4 AEAP teacher. The talent and dedication of our Linden AEAP staff is phenomenal! If invited, I am willing to come back and listen/talk in more detail about how the program can be enhanced for future generations of children.
