    How to Think Outside the Box: 7 Ways to Boost Your Creativity


    Dear Whitehouse Families, 

    My name is Mrs. Martinez and I will be a new face at Whitehouse School this year! I am the new Gifted & Talented, Enrichment, and Honors Math teacher.  We will be working on fun and challenging projects throughout the year that incorporate creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills.  Students will be encouraged to tackle challenges with grit and perseverance, as well as a growth mindset. Check out this video to get a glimpse of how students will be encouraged to think outside of the box in my class!  https://youtu.be/7KMM387HNQk
