Glenda Ritz visited National Blue Ribbon School, Salk Elementary, in Merrillville on Wednesday, September 10, 2014.  She was able to see Inquiry Math in action in a fourth grade classroom, Balanced Literacy in a first grade classroom, and an energetic lesson in music class.  We were honored that Mrs. Ritz was able to spend some time with us and share her vision for Indiana Schools.
