Teach India Project hosted an Earth Day Celebration at the Burlington, MA Public Library on Friday April 20th, 2012. Mrs. Karen Rickershauser, Principal of Memorial Elementary School in Burlington, MA presented the book, “The People Who Hugged the Trees”, an environmental tale from India, to a spell bound audience of first, second and third graders. Children in the audience and parents who were present were captivated by her expressive presentation and the discussion of environmental concerns that followed.
Through hands-on craft activities at the event, children learnt that they could repurpose and reuse common household recyclables. They made gift bags out of newspapers and magazine pages and transformed common plastic bottles and jars into usable and fun containers. Each child wrote out a pledge of what they could change in their own lives to be more environmentally conscious.
Eleven young volunteers guided and supported the Earth Day Celebration and the event would not have been possible without them. They were (in alphabetical order): Arya Bhat, Jagravi Dave, Kanmani Kabilan, Mathew Jankowski, Niket Patel, Parth Nagraj, Sakshi Gera, Sanjana Iyer, Serina Khalifa, Shishir Bhat and Vibhav Bhat. Teach India Project will continue to provide volunteer opportunities to students through events, for writing and publishing online and for taking part in all kinds of creative programming for our website www.teachindiaproject.org .
This event was supported by local merchants: Raja and Rana’s Indian Market, The Mughals, Rita Gandhi (Realtor with Showcase of Homes), Ritu Ki Rasoi, Towne market Inc. and Smita’s Boutique.
A fourth grade teacher makes a commitment to global education and is presented an award to support her work.
Teach India Project presented the Global Education Professional Development Award to Tara Olshaw in July 2011. Tara teaches fourth grade at Memorial Elementary School in Burlington, Massachusetts. She travelled to India on a two week self financed study tour in July 2011 visiting cultural sites, grassroots organizations and schools in North India.
The Award of $500 was made to supplement her professional development tour to India this summer so that she could purchase and expand teacher resources for global studies in her classroom. Tara is particularly interested in literature for elementary levels and used the Award to buy books, posters, printing blocks and many other artifacts for her classroom and school while in India. Tara says, “The award enabled me to buy books and the benefit will be a stronger and invigorated curriculum about South Asia.”
