Rewind: Watch a replay of video chat with Gildo Rey teachers

Gildo Rey Elementary teacher Michael Fitzgerald and former teacher Brendan Jeffreys answered reader questions and talked about the school’s impressive turnaround during a Google+ Hangout on Thursday afternoon. 

The two educators were featured in Monday’s front-page story about the Auburn school. Click the play button below to watch a full replay of the video chat:

Jeffreys, who now works in the Auburn School District’s central office, developed an instruction method at Gildo Rey called balanced math, which uses a fast pace, constant review and plenty of call-and-response.

Fitzgerald, a third-year math teacher at Gildo Rey, uses the same technique in his classroom and has been mentored by Jeffreys.

Thursday’s was monitored by reporter Linda Shaw.
