2006 Lifetime Achievement

And this is the part of the Film Festival that is always so sad to me. This is when we pay special tribute to the teachers that are retiring after a lifetime of service to children.

This year Mabry only has one teacher that is retiring. We will now show this short clip to honor her service to the many children whose lives she has touched in her 26 years of service.

Click the link above to download the movie in this category just as they were presented on April 25, 2006, the night of our film festival.

The Realia Museum at the GIA (VP)

Mrs. Glenda Glenn, our 7th grade Advanced Content Social Studies teacher, is the Chief Educational Officer (CEO) of the Glenn Intelligence Agency (GIA as opposed to the CIA). Each of her "operatives" (students) are investigative agents in the quest for global knowledge. In the spring of 2005, she began the Realia Museum, with collections from her travels. The museum has grown with acquisitions from two grants, additional donations, and visiting exhibits.

Artifacts from the museum collection were professionally photographed by her operatives and assembled in iPhoto to create a virtual museum. This project will ultimately yield a hardback book, which will also be made available as an online pdf download. The operatives wish to share their collection with students and teachers around the globe.

As a teaser for this upcoming release in January of 2006, the GIA has sponsored the creation of this video podcast. As you view the podcast, note the exemplary museum quality of the student work.
