It makes me smile each time I hear about a teacher who inspires greatness in her students- especially when this leads to a better understanding of Going Green. Most of you know that I am an old schoolteacher. Perhaps that is why I was attracted to a segment of a PBS Series (Edens Lost and Found) that pays tribute to Deb Perryman.
Ms Perryman is a teacher who created and outdoor classroom, a 35 AC parcel of land she somehow managed to salvage and then sculpt into a nature preserve right out the door of her school! You may wonder how to motivate a group of teenage people these days. Take a peek at the video clip and you see how Ms. Perryman teaches about the meaning and practice of stewardship- a subject you all know is close to my heart.
WATCH as she teaches students about sustainability and the environment through hands-on activities. She calls this "service learning."
