Tammy’s big idea: Tammy’s students designed and created a hydroponics program to learn firsthand the life cycle of plants, the importance of clean water and alternative farming methods. They also tracked data like pH levels and plant growth. Her students learned the importance of helping others by growing produce for the families of classmates potentially experiencing food scarcity.
Interesting fact: Tammy teaches for a school in a rural, high poverty, agricultural community. Her passion is finding ways to engage students through out-of-the box teaching and hands-on lessons. Tammy has a Masters in Special Education and is currently in the last semester of her Educational Leadership program.
