I am on a Genius Hour high this afternoon!!!
My amazing co-leaders and I have reached out to experts from around the country. Students signed up requesting an expert, and we worked to find people willing to help the students. Currently about 28 people have volunteered to work with 7th grade students. These are people from across the country and in our own school building. These are college professors and business people. These are doctors and pharmacists and criminal justice professionals. People with doctorate degrees to college researchers.
35% of my students’ worlds just got a whole lot bigger as the community at large has stepped in to help students explore their passions.
My heart is just full to see how willing people are to help!
