Exploring The Global Goals For Sustainability: @vermontkkids123


I have the privilege of being a Kindergarten teacher in a public school in Vermont. I also have the honor of being an ambassador for the global goals. This means that I am able to promote the love and importance of the SDGs alongside many other amazing educators globally. Part of my role is to help inspire others to learn about the goals and find meaningful, inspiring ways to connect students and their families globally to help solve a common need. The outcome is always positive and the impact is huge. I have made a commitment to engage with the #Teachsdgs as an opportunity to promote positive change. The world needs everyone's help. Join in!

TeachSDGs Website

 

This page is one place that I will be posting projects and learning themes that I explore inside and out of Kindergarten connecting to the Global Goals For Sustainability. I hope my work, the work of my students and families inspire you to join in.
