2nd Grade Teachers Attend “Farm to Classroom” Professional Development

2nd grade teachers, Mrs. Dockery and Mrs. Wilson, recently attended “Farm to Classroom”, an amazing 2-day professional development workshop in Nauvoo, Alabama! They spent their time at McDowell Farm School, where they toured the farm and Magnolia Nature Preschool. This workshop gives educators different tools to engage student curiosity, as well as to promote inquiry-based learning and evidence-based problem solving through hands-on experiences. Activities included learning about animals on the farm, building raised garden beds, and working in the Teaching Kitchen where they prepared food that had been harvested from the gardens.
