Welcome to Innovative Design Challenges

About Ms. Raleigh:
This is my 8th year teaching, but my first year teaching here at Central Middle School. Previously, I taught in Western Springs, Chicago, and Forest Park.  I majored in Elementary Education at Illinois State University and have endorsements in Math, Language Arts, and Social Science. I currently live in Chicago with my dog, Nash, and love to craft and run on my free time. I'm super excited to be at Central! 
About Innovative Design Challenges:
In this class, students will work on project-based challenges to develop extraordinary creativity, critical thinking, communication, and teamwork skills. Students will create, evaluate, and effectively utilize information, media and technology to ensure their readiness for life in the 21st century. Engaging students in deeper understanding and real-world connections will better help prepare them for this fast-changing world.
