MRH Teachers Learn Sustainability in Vermont

The teachers attended a week-long course on sustainability education and also visited Middlebury College.

Four teachers from traveled to Vermont to attend a week-long course on sustainability education recently.

Lauren Fleischer (MS Instructional Specialist), Whitney Strubhar (MS 8th Grade Communication Arts Teacher), Bill Henske (MS 7th Grade Science Teacher) and Bob Dillon (MS Principal) attended a week-long course on Sustainability Education held annually at Shelburne Farms, in Shelburne, VT.

They also visited Middlebury College while they were there. A blog from Middlebury states that MRH's four corner stones: Scholarship, Leadership, Stewardship and Citizenship make it a leader in sustainability education.

"There are so many sustainability initiatives that it is hard to keep up with them all," the bolgger from Middlebury College said about Middlebury.

What a waste of money! Have these “educators” not heard of the Internet. You cannot tell me this couldn't have been accomplished by reading a manual but no; a trip to New England is so much more fun. Sustainability… really? Do you people think the supply of taxpayer money is endless (AKA: sustainable)? If you had to fund your own travel expenses, I will bet you would have found an economical alternative but when you're spending other peoples' money nothing is too extravagant. Elliot Davis needs to shine a light on your profligate ignorance. Only when shamed will our governmental entities behave responsibly and be good stewards of taxpayers' money.
