Robin Caldwell is an elementary teacher at Katherine Smith Elementary School in San Jose, California. She was a part of the K. Smith team to reinvent this Title 1 school from a traditional public school to a complete PBL school in grades transitional kindergarten to sixth grade. She believes that all students can achieve at high levels when they are engaged in well-planned and authentic PBL units.
Robin has worked within her school’s leadership team to focus on scaffolds and supports within PBL that help students reach the learning targets. This work has enabled her to prepare students to think critically, learn continuously, work intentionally, communicate effectively, collaborate constructively, and contribute globally.
