Teachers hold a very special place in my heart; to me, it’s one of the most noble professions in the world!
I just heard about Hopedale Jr-Sr High School science teacher Ann LaBrode, and she is my Badass Chick of the Week! Last summer, she was one of only 50 teachers chosen from across the country to do professional development at the Discovery Education Headquarters. Yes, Discovery as in The Discovery Channel! There, Ann learned about a cool new method of teaching soil and agricultural science. She also met with the President’s Council of Advisers on science and technology. But it didn’t end there: Discovery reached out to her and asked if they could film her and her students as they pilot the new method. So, they did!
She and her students, along with fellow teacher Caitlin McInnis and her students, are now featured on Discovery’s web site which details the science program and how effective it is for students. How cool!
I love that Ann LaBrode is so dedicated to improving the educational impact of her students!
If YOU have a Badass Chick you want me to highlight, let me know! Loren@1033ampradio.com
