People's Academy

Bryan Stone, Steve Bissette and I taught at the Peoples Academy for two days last week.
A couple weeks ago Bryan and I went up there but it was a bit of a false start, but that's a story for another time. This is the story of success.
When we got into Morrisville and found the school we found ourselves on their events board outside the school,
Flyers promoting our teaching and the student's art show were strung all over the school,
Here's our original flyer from the first time,

We taught Ms. Lynch's 6th 7th and 8th grade class. She was great and her students were enthusiastic and a little crazy.
We also taught high schoolers on a voluntary basis. Not many showed up, but those that did put a lot of work in.
Here's some pics from the student's art show,

We had some time off between classes and did some site seeing. We went to Emily's Bridge, a haunted vermont bridge,

I think a lot of the kids came away from our two days having gotten something, and I know I had a good time.
