My Students

My students are primarily from military families based at a nearby Air Station. Our area including our school, student and teacher housing and our greater community at large suffered tremendous loss as Hurricane Florence devastated our region. Many of my students including myself were displaced due to storm damage to our homes. The hardships and resilience that have been endured and exhibited are mind-boggling. My students are a constant source of inspiration for me and I want them to have an unforgettable day of adventures and enlightenment. Many of my students have never been to a museum or cultural exhibit and several have never traveled outside of the county!

My Project

Students need to experience the governmental process in each stage and where it takes place. Citizenship is created not born and sparking interest in how our government functions and where is a vital link to active curiosity and future voters. The students have been reading about how the government process works, elections and the inception of bills and laws however actually visiting and participating in the process would be an unforgettable life experience! No amount of webquests and online field trips can compare with the actual visitation of historical and political sites such as the state capital where actual policies are written and hands-on learning takes place.
