In January, Audrey was invited to a nearby elementary school to meet with three teachers. Â They were hoping to raise Monarchs with their classes and maybe help with a few gardens in the area and around their school and wanted to find an expert to help. Â They questioned AudreyÂ about Monarchs and then invited her to speak to their students.
On Thursday, Audrey spoke to three fifth grade classes. Â The classes had only been told that a Monarch expert would be sharing with them. Â The teachers thought the “shock” of seeing someone just a few years older them them would be good for the groups.
The students were interested in what Audrey was saying and asked some great questions. Â Audrey did a wonderfulÂ job talking with a 60+ audience! Â She offered to help with their Monarch project and even gave the teachers her butterfly e-mail so the students will be able to ask questions. Â She is excited to help and see where this leads!
