My Students

My small K-8 school is in a rural area a couple hours from NYC. We are a crossroads for example, between states, between weekend homes and family homes, between small-scale and large-scale businesses, between families that immigrated here in colonial times and those who arrived a few weeks ago. Developmentally, teens are wondering how to be adults in a complicated world.

My students are special because they often appreciate learning about how their small-town connects to a bigger world.

Despite living in a rural area, they often do know where their food comes from, or how nearby farms produce food.

My Project

Students will gain breath-taking views of the Hudson, the Mid-Hudson Bridge, and the city of Poughkeepsie. They'll be intrigued by the grand height and narrowness of this railroad bridge turned walkway, which will open up learning and questions for their bridge engineering project in science class.

We need to brave new heights, enjoy the sun and wind on our faces, and see first-hand how our little towns in the northwest corner of Connecticut have been connected by river and rail to larger populations, with goods traveling in both directions.

Past students have enjoyed and learned from this field trip and I'd like to continue offering it to my students.
