Teaching was the joy of my life. Having to retire from teaching was the hardest part of becoming ill with Behcets. I was one of those teachers who believed life experiences were the best way to teach kids Reading, Math, English, Social Studies and Science. There were no textbooks in my room. Instead we used children's literature and real life experiences.
My classes were known as the Elkhart River Elementary Scientists. The barn owl was locally threatened so the kids spent time learning about it's habitat and what they could do to help the owl. We also dissected owl pellets (Sterilized Owl throw-up, lol) to discover what the owls were eating. A local raptor rehabilitator brought an owl to the classroom, so the kids could meet an owl in person. Since owls are nocturnal we were having no luck seeing them during our weekly field trips to the river. So this layout is from a day in my classroom.
