We live in such a generous and caring community! I am writing to give a big thank you to the Telluride Education Foundation. The amazing work of their dedicated volunteers allows us teachers to regularly extend our educational program beyond the schoolhouse into our awesome “backyard”.
As a science teacher, I find their support of our schools to be invaluable. The latest example, for my sixth grade students, was their grant in support of our climate change unit with Telluride Institute’s Watershed Education Program.
The additional monies and support allowed us to work with local wildlife experts, take several field trips to explore the potential local impacts of a changing climate, and update our wind turbine kits. Thanks, TEF, for helping make school more meaningful and enjoyable!
