I don't at all want to downplay the potential dangers, but I'm thankful to say that there have been almost no incidents with vaping at Linden over the past few years, even as it's gaining popularity with American teens. That being said, knowledge is power, so the more parents and educators know about issues like this, the better able we are to help our students and community. To that end, I want to share an excellent post about vaping that written by a colleague, Tom Bresnehan, who is an assistant principal at Bridgewater-Raynham High School in Bridgewater. Honestly, I'm betting that many adults haven't heard of these trends and likely don't understand the language. I know it's an education for me. Click below to read.
Vaping in Schools
From the Assistant Principals
While the two of us work across nine grade levels, looking to support all of the learning, teaching, and culture building that happens during a day at Linden, we are repeatedly struck by everyone's successes, struggles, dreams, and questions. Hopefully, this blog will be a space where we can address and dig more deeply into our work, forcing us to understand things better and helping us to share it with you.
