I have been a teacher in Richland School District Two in Columbia, SC for my entire career. I've taught in a number of middle schools and have had the benefit of working in a number of high schools as well. My high school experiences are helping me prepare my middle school students for the next level of their educational career.
Megan McMahon had a wonderful idea of having the students bring in parts of the ingredients. Students could then sit down and get to know each other. I think that empathy is built when you have a connection with someone and what better way to do this then when eating a meal together. Megan further came up with the idea of bringing in the community - what a great community service initiative!
Oh what a great idea! I didn't think about it where kids bring in part of the ingredients. I love the idea of incorporating the community! Being from Louisiana, I've always had gumbo and these are wonderful ideas...thank you so much!!
