Michelle Labelle-Fisch, honored Thursday as Teacher of the Year for the Fairfield-Suisun School District, spoke about starting as a 10-year-old in the school district during an era when field trips didn’t require permission slips.
“We just did a lot of hands-on learning,” the K.I. Jones Elementary School teacher recalled.
“Common Core is really going to allow us to be more hands on,” Labelle-Fisch said of new school standards that she sees as meaning children can learn as she once did.
