But just how much can one teacher and a handful of students accomplish together? As it turns out, quite a lot! Stacey makes sure her students are fully engaged in learning, even outside the four walls of the classroom. Her units might take them to places as diverse as a theatre performance in Ashland or a cattle feedlot in Idaho. And yet Stacey finds a way to relate these lessons to each student’s experience or interests.
Stacey’s outstanding efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. She was recently named an Oregon Regional Teacher of the Year.
