  • ambiguous (adj.)

    ~ confusing, able to be understood in different ways

    The teacher's explanation was ambiguous, so the students still didn't understand the grammar point.

    Thank you to Tonya Manago and Gary Hughes who conducted the first New Teacher’s Academy meeting on September 12 (which was well attended) and will provide teachers new to the profession as well as teachers new to Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. HS the support they need in order to be successful.

    Dr. Portia Barnes held the first Puma Pride parent meeting on September 14 in Lecture Hall #1. Dr. Barnes was able to capture what makes Puma Pride an elite program by highlighting its core values of rigor, relevance, and relationships. New and returning Puma Pride parents were provided an overview of the program as well an opportunity to ask questions. Also, thank you to Dr. Terri Dove and Jasmine Stewart for their support.
