My Students

We live in rural Vermont. The town has a four-corner stop and a tiny general store. We are a close-knit community with families that extend into many other states. The school is small with a population of 62 in Pre-K through sixth grade.

Annually the sixth grade takes a trip to Washington, D.C.

to experience the world outside of Vermont. The students are in awe of all of the sites and buildings they experience.

These students and their families are very grateful to be able to take a trip of a lifetime before they move onto middle school. It is an experience they talk about for years.

My Project

As a rural Vermont community, the students love enriching experiences. These students are in a class of 12 and are studying the government and WW II.

What better way to learn firsthand about these things, than by visiting the place and museums where these things are?

The students ride a train, learn life skills, and many make their first trip away from home.

In Washington, they will visit the Capitol, Senator Leahy's office, museums, the zoo, and Arlington Cemetery. They also experience different eating experiences and traveling on public transportation. The highlight of it all is the night tour of the monuments. What a wonderful experience for these students!
