I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing Helen Baller teachers about what they love about their school community. I put the interviews together and got to present it at their end of year assembly. I am hoping to get young minds thinking about community around them and reminding everyone how important it is to be here for each other. Building community together. Enjoy!
I had the wonderful opportunity to talk with Donna Hargrave, school administrator at the Camas Montessori School. We talked about the Montessori philosophy. Do you know what sensorial education is? There are so many AMAZING ways for little ones to learn at this school! A great option in our community…they are truly teaching a wonderful education, but they are also instilling and teaching beautiful skills for life. Camas Montessori-check it out!
Sheryl and her husband lost their son in August of 2016 to suicide. While processing through their grief, they started a movement called Our City Cares. You may have noticed the signs of hope posted around our community. Don’t Give Up. You Are Not Alone. Your Life Matters. Your Mistakes Don’t Define You. There is Hope. Comparison is the thief of Joy. There are also handouts with crisis hotline information and support locations at the schools for students in need. Please listen to Sheryl’s story and think how YOU can be an ambassador of hope in our community for someone struggling. We are all connected. Thank you.
I had the wonderful honor of getting to chat with the advisors and senior officers of the DECA club at Camas High School. This group of young people are AMAZING. From the moment they walked into the room and came up to shake my hand and make eye contact with me I was impressed. Listen in to hear about their experiences with DECA and what makes this such an amazing program!
Last spring I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Grass Valley Elementary and talk to the students about the teachers in their community and what THEY can do in their community to make it better, brighter and stronger. This was such a fun day! I got to interview two teachers, the principal and have a dance party at the end. Check out the fun at Grass Valley Elementary! Check out this teacher in the photo! Special shout out to one amazing teacher at Grass Valley Elementary, Juli Hanson. You rock! Your love for the kids and top notch teaching amazes me.
