The first BVSD 21st Century Cohort (1.0) launched December 11th, 2012, beginning a three-year journey of learning, leading and inspiration. On March 9th, 2016, this group of dedicated educators experienced the culmination of their learning throughout their time as Cohort 1.0 with a graduation ceremony celebrating their leadership and successes.
Cohort 1.0 teachers captured their three-year journey in online portfolios. During this graduation ceremony, each teacher shared a reflection through student work and final videos showcasing his or her own learning, growth and leadership while in the cohort.

Throughout this evening, Cohort 1.0 teachers shared how this learning and work impacted their lives beyond the classroom--five teachers shared that they began postgraduate work in educational technology (or related field) in extending their education! Many have presented at conferences locally and regionally, and some even nationally. Their willingness to share their learning is what has made this group special and will continue to impact their students, staff and schools beyond their work in the cohort.
As part of this work in the cohort, BVSD teacher librarians shared a support and leadership role in their schools and with these teachers. You can read and see more of their own reflections of their time in the cohort here!
Thank you to the teachers and librarians of Cohort 1.0; for your leadership, vision, passion, and excitement. You continue to influence your students, schools, BVSD and the work of the Sucess Effect, future-ready schools and innovation!
