Today at Hathaway Brown School, fourth graders commemorated National Women’s History Month at the school’s annual Notable Women Reception.
Students taught by Fourth Grade Teachers Mary Boutton and Jennifer Stilson each selected a famous woman to research from all fields including science, math, the military, business, technology, politics, literature, etc. After extensive reading, the girls pretended to be their women and wrote their “autobiographies.” The day began with a parent discussion about the significance of the project and what we hope girls will take away from their work, led by Koyen Shah, director of the center of leadership and well-being, and Kathy Zopatti, director of the primary school. Guest speaker Amy Martin from She in the CLE (a local blog), also addressed the audience in the WCC.
