    50,000 Trees Planted Across Knox County
    And a Few at South-Doyle 
    A national group planned a day to plant 50,000 trees across the country in one day (
    As part of this program, Joseph Konvicka, an intern with the local Adopt-a-Watershed program through Americorps, and I developed a plan to have SDMS students participate.
    Students who participated received bonus points and were provided with gloves and tools use to plant the seedlings.
    An area was picked along Baker Creek and members of my Outdoor Classroom Club marked the planting sites a few days before the big planting day, March 14. 
    About ten students and several adults showed up at 10am and got to work. In less than two hours, we planted 100 trees and erected a barrier to mark their location and protect the trees from lawn mowers or  playing children.

    Mr. C  
     From all of the students and staff, we want to thank Mr.  Gary Critselous for serving as interim principal while Mrs. Baker has been away on maternity leave.

    South-Doyle Adds New Technology
    Students using laptops  

    Using technology in our classrooms is nothing new at South-Doyle. Teachers have been integrating technology in their classrooms for years. From computers to interactive white boards, our teachers enhance the learning experience of their students by bringing their lessons alive with technology everyday. But this year is a little different because we have introduced several new levels of technology.  

    1. New and Improved Website: With easier navigation and more improved features district-wide.
    2. Aspen: A student information system that allows students and parents the ability to view student grades in real time 24 hours a day. 
    3. Canvas: A learning management system that makes learning in the virtual world relative and challenging for every student through online project based learning (PBL) allowing students to create and submit projects online for grading without ever using paper or pencil.
    4. Laptops for Students: Our most exciting technology upgrades this year has been the addition of 271 new MacBook Air laptop computers for student use in classrooms. Giving teachers flexibility with research, assignments, assessments, and  Project-Based Learning (PBL) without having to wait for openings in computer lab schedules. 
    With our award winning faculty, and phenomenal student body, our new technology additions have made our school one of the most competitive middle schools in Knox County. Learning has never been more exciting at South-Doyle and we're just getting started!

    Mrs. Lewis is one of our 6th grade Language Arts teacher. Recently, Mr. Critselous interviewed Mrs. Lewis:


    Mr. C: How long have you been at SDMS?  
      Mrs. Lewis: I have been at this school since January of 2010

    Mr. C: How long have you been teaching? 

      Mrs. Lewis: I have been teaching 4 1/2 years....this is a 2nd career for me

    Mr. C: Have you ever taught at other schools?  

      Mrs. Lewis: No!! I am a CHEROKEE!!

    Mr. C: What about your family?  

      Mrs. Lewis: I have been married to Jeff for 21 years, son Tucker is 19 and a freshman in college, love my Yorkie...Tater, and have been a foster care provider for 16 years.

    Mr. C: Where did you grow up? 

      Mrs. Lewis: Knoxville..I attended Northwest Middle School and Central High School, University of Tenn, and South College

    Mr. C: Why do you teach?  

      Mrs. Lewis: When my son left elementary school I was lost!!  I was a very involved parent and when he and his friends started middle school they didn't want me around as much.  I began to sub and fell in love with watching students learn and grow.  So, I went back to school for a second degree.

    Mr. C: Anything else you want to tell us about you?  

      Mrs. Lewis: I am known as the mean teacher...I am not mean.  I have HIGH expectations for all students and I if I have to, I will dish out tough love all day---every day.
