PA3 Back to School Event: Getting Teacher Evaluations Right

On October 25, 2012, a crowd of about 40 Tigers (PA3 members and alumni of the Teacher Prep program) gathered together to hear a lively panel discussion led by Timothy Matheney '89, who is the Director of Evaluation for NJ Department of Education.  Other panelists included Kathy Chesmel '85, Ph.D, John Yi '03, Kwame Ivery '93, and Sarah Paine '08.  The topic of the discussion was "Getting Teacher Evaluations Right."  Thank you to our panelists and to all who attended!

Raising support for local Trenton Schools: As part of the event, PA3 asked our members to consider a financial or school supplies donation that would go towards teachers at local schools, including Trenton High West, Trenton Central High School, and Ewing High School.   

Our sincere appreciation goes out to all who donated resources to support our local teachers!  PA3 members donated $1,110 in cash contributions as well as a plethora of school supplies (including binders, paper, markers, graphing calculators, and more).  In addition, PA3 was pleased to provide a matching gift of $2,000, for a total cash donation of $3,110.  An awesome effort!

"Princeton: America's Campus" Lecture by Barksdale Maynard '86

W. Barksdale Maynard ’86 writes for the PAW and his fifth book is an excellent architectural history of Princeton's campus (and where the term "campus" was first applied to an educational institution).  His architectural campus tour at Reunions has developed quite a following and over 200 people attended this year.

 

He will be the inaugural lecturer at a series about New Jersey history, sponsored by the New Jersey Historical Society – and the lecture will be held at Drumthwacket, the Governor’s mansion and former home of a number of Princetonians but most notably Moses Taylor Pyne ‘1877.  A rare opportunity to visit this place many of us drive past.  And if we're lucky, maybe Chris Christie will stop by.
