Our Teacher of the Month is the super-spectacular Mr. Ken P. of Marsing, Idaho! Mr. P. is the director of two afterschool programs where he sets up fun and educational aftercare for students. While the kids love hands-on activities, and being outside, they are also huge fans of reading! Mr. P. said he wanted his students to “know the truth about American history” and bought 80 Rush Revere books so he could share his passion with them. Mr. P. passed out the books to different teachers, and each one is using the books in a unique way. One fun class of 3rd graders even set up a Thanksgiving dinner party! The books have been a huge hit with the kids, and Mr. P. told us that he has seen great progress in their vocabulary and reading skills.
We are so proud of what Mr. P. is doing in Idaho and are so impressed by the impact he is having. Thank you, Mr. P., for sharing your love of reading and history!
