” Deirdre Abrams loves to get her fifth graders outdoors to ‘tackle’ problems in real world situations. The annual study of the water quality in nearby Boulder Creek is an example of students engaging with math and science, along with various members of the local community.”

” We raise rainbow trout in the classroom, tag them with the help from the Fish & Game and have a release ceremony at the creek. Then we track where our fish go with underwater surveillance cameras. It’s live streamed so the kinds can watch at home.”
The project – ‘A Celebration of Learning‘ involved photographing one school district, five schools and hundreds of students – engaged in and exploring education, pre-pandemic. It’s a handbook for the McCall Donnelly Schools. It’s an example of how creativity, curiosity and critical thinking builds life time students.
” A single conversation changed my vision of education forever….The quest to reach 100% of the students has only grown stronger with time.”
