Getting New Ideas for the Tough Work of Sustainability
I need food, airfare and hotel expenses covered for me to travel to and attend the National Green Schools Expo in Denver, CO in May 2018.
This project expired on April 27, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
My school is a Title 1 public school located in NE Philadelphia. Our student population is very diverse with approximately 25% of students receiving special education services and 20% of our students are English Language Learners. 100% of our students qualify for free and/or reduced lunch.
Our school is situated on 88 acres of land that backs up to a public park.
We are situated on the Pennypack watershed and less than a mile from the Delaware river. We are currently in the process of working on our Green Schools Certification through the National Wildlife Federation and we have three teachers participating in the Noyce Fellowship program to increase education for sustainability across content areas.
Attending this conference will give me the opportunity to showcase the great work that my students are doing to save our environment as well as allow me to network with other teachers and professionals who are doing the same work around the country. This will put the work of my students on a national platform and in a positive light as well as give me the opportunity to share and learn from others who are working with students to do the same work. This opportunity will be used to energize me and my work as well as to get new ideas of activities and events for my students to get involved in.
