Classroom: Community Helpers
This past week we focused on community helpers in honor of Labor Day. The students not only learned about firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, dentists, teachers, veterinarians, construction workers, paramedics, farmers, mail carriers, chefs etc. They also had the opportunity to meet and get to know some of them.
The students and I greatly appreciate those that volunteered their time to come in and speak to us about their careers!
