Sheila Clark is a 5th grade teacher at Columbia Central Jr. High School in Steger, Illinois. She is pouring herself into what would be a dream trip for 8th grade students to Washington, DC.
As an educator, she realizes the importance of such a trip and how it makes things real for the subjects the students study. A well rounded education not only consists of learning what is in books, but also by living experiences that put impressions on children. These impressions are as individual as the students themselves. Each takes something different from an experience they all may share together.
This trip will expand the understanding of the world they live in and the operations of the government, in a way no book could quite convey. Please take time to vote for Sheila Clark.
HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
GOOD WORK & GOOD LUCK!
