For one week, the entire CSUSA network voted on their favorite monthly Bright Spot winner, choosing from 6 innovative teachers who truly thought outside of the box for the benefit of their students. The network made its voice heard when Sophia McMorris won by an astounding margin! Ms. McMorris was the inaugural monthly Bright Spot winner in October for her submission revolving around inquiry-based, student-centered learning and community service.
