Innovation shouldn't look like a tablet or a laptop. It should look like a learning environment where students—with teachers at their side—choose their learning targets and aim to hit them. Take Aim at Innovation by Grant Lichtman

Martin Institute Teaching Fellow Grant Lichtman wrote an article for the September/October issue of Leading and Learning Through Technology, the magazine of the International Society for Technology in Education.

Lichtman's visit to Presbyterian Day School is part of the article.

The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) has selected six PDS teachers and administrators to lead sessions at their 2014 annual conference in Florida next February.

“It’s a big deal for individuals and a school to be selected as a presenter,” says PDS Headmaster Lee Burns.  NAIS made these selections from over 550 proposals that were submitted. “I think it demonstrates the excellence and innovation of PDS and the strong reputation we enjoy nationally as an independent school.”

Several thousand educators from leading independent schools around the country are expected to attend the conference.


On Friday, April 12, 2013, David Hoyt Montague was named Presbyterian Day School’s 2013 Distinguished Alumnus. David was part of the PDS Class of 1976 and currently serves as the Director of the Memphis Teacher Residency (MTR).

Prior to MTR, David served for two years (2005-2007) with Campus Crusade for Christ in East Asia. From 2000-2005, David was the Director of Service Over Self, an urban home-repair ministry in the Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis. 

From 1987-2000, David worked with Morgan Keegan & Co as an investment broker and managing director. David, a lifetime Memphian, graduated in 1986 from Southern Methodist University (Dallas, TX) with a degree in Finance and from Memphis University School in 1982. 

David has been married to his wife Kelli for 20 years and they have five daughters: May, Annie, Ruthie, Mary Van and Joy. David enjoys time with his family and regular bike rides. “David leads by example with motivation and self-discipline.” This servant leader truly represents the goals, ideals, and imagination of Presbyterian Day School.

The first PDS Golf Tournament sponsored by the Alumni Association was held on April 19.

Despite the unusually cool temperatures, players enjoyed lunch and golf on The Links at Galloway.

Congratulations to the team of Brice Bailey, Michael Murphy, John Phillips V, and Michael Schaefer for a first place finish.  Michael Murphy also won the Closest to the Pin Award, and Gus Oyler had the Longest Drive.

The second place team was Chip Campbell, Ned Laughlin, Harry Sayle, and Jason Shelby.

Thanks goes to everyone that participated in such a fun Friday!
