The Corps Members Start School Service

Last week, our 17 SCA Massachusetts AmeriCorps members visited their 10 school placements and 4 internships to observe, introduce themselves, begin to get to know the students, and play games. From December until March, the members will be spending their weeks teaching science and environmental education to 3 year olds up to 14 year olds, engaging the students in service learning projects, and leading afterschool programs. As one of our cooperating teachers said, “the corps members get to teach the way we [the teachers] which we could teach” with hands on lessons, outdoor experiences, games, and of course costumes!
