In January, Audrey was invited to a nearby elementary school to meet with three teachers. 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. They questioned Audrey about Monarchs and then invited her to speak to their students.
On Thursday, Audrey spoke to three fifth grade classes. The classes had only been told that a Monarch expert would be sharing with them. 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. Audrey did a wonderful job talking with a 60+ audience! 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. She is excited to help and see where this leads!
