In this episode, Danny Hauger tours his garden. As learning grows each year, you can see the blossoming of knowledge in a classroom. Branches extend, and the fruits of study and investment begin to bloom throughout the year. There are so many parallels to gardening and teaching, that I reached out to Four Winds Growers in Watsonville, California. As a local grower to our show, with extremely reasonable prices.
FourWindsGrowers.com inspired me to try a new idea in distance learning, documenting the growth of a tree as a metaphor for our knowledge of history over the school year. I ordered a Holiday Avocado tree, and I look forward to planting at the start of the 2020 school year, and showing to my class remotely.
In this unusual time, I hope every teacher who is returning is staying safe with a mask or shield in the new school year. There can be an intimidating presence of some masks, so I reached out to a talented mask maker designing masks for teachers.
