End of the school year preparation. Oh what a Saturday!!

Greetings everyone.  I hope that everyone within the south-east region of Michigan got a chance to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather were having today.  June 15th is the last day of school for students attending Detroit Public schools.  As a teacher making strides to prepare for the fall, I’m always thinking of different ways to approach the forthcoming school year.  This morning, I attended a very informative in service titled “Students with HIV.”  Despite the fact that this virus has been in existence since the early 80’s, it can still be a very touchy topic.  In the fall, with the consent of my parents, I plan to teach my students about HIV by using the sixth grade curriculum and supplementary materials provided to me.

Moving on to a subject that’s not as touchy, this summer, I along with other teachers from this region will have the opportunity to participate in an Urban Forest Stewardwardship course at Belle Isle.  In other words, I’m going to be outside feeding the deer and getting my hands dirty.  The exciting part about this five-day course is that it does not end there.  My forthcoming students for the fall of 2012 are going to  greatly benefit from it all.  How?  They are going to have the opportunity to visit the Belle Isle Nature Zoo at least three times the 2012-13 school year and gain the skills necessary as Urban Forest Stewards. My students are going to be in for a real treat this fall.
