    Ms. Waldbaum  believes that developing Discovery students into confident, inquisitive and actively engaged learners requires a team approach.  The entire community with whom Discovery students will encounter…. whether in the classroom, office, cafeteria, or hallway, contribute to their daily learning experiences.  A community that works together as a team creates a culture of shared successes and a desire to learn from challenges.  Together, the Discovery family will try new things, become visionaries in teaching, and foster that same excitement for novel thinking in Discovery students.
