Glen Oak Teacher Angela Michanicou Named Compass Learning Classroom Hero
Congratulations to Fourth Grade Teacher, Angie Michanicou, for being named a Compass Learning Classroom Hero for her exceptional use of Compass Learning software in the classroom!
Mrs. Michanicou has been utilizing CompassLearning Odyssey as an instructional tool within her classroom. She engages her students in daily whole group instruction through Compass Learning and uses the classroom’s Smartboard to access Odyssey lessons at her students’ levels. During the 2012-2013 school year, Mrs. Michanicou logged onto the system using her whole group student account a total of 132 times (more than 72 hours). Mrs. Michanicou’s students spent a total of 44,877 minutes in the system and completed 3,072 activities with an average score of 82 percent. Mrs. Michanicou strategically chose lessons and activities that were aligned to the Common Core State Standards. As a result, her students were able to improve their “mean” Reading NWEA by 14.2 RIT points and “mean” Math NWEA by 10.5 RIT points.
Mrs. Michanicou proactively sought assistance with how best to utilize CompassLearning Odyssey. She participated in all professional development opportunities and diligently worked to implement the program with fidelity.
