Being a teacher and working in the town I love and also a resident in? I have the opportunity to work with many people in the community. Until being exposed to my small school with a big heart I had a new outlook on my job and purpose. Being in a school where there are higher needs in social and emotional and providing a safe environment is extreme,y important. Unfortunately being a school with under 100 students it is hard to create extra curricular programs.
Students have approached my in starting more activities at school and hands on learning such as Lego. Being able to incorporate the tools within the classroom it could also provide an opportunity many of the students would not have outside of he school.
