DPS Educators Work and Learn in Kenya

DPS educators from McAuliffe International School, McAuliffe at Manual, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy and Skinner Middle School spent their summer break traveling to Nairobi, Kenya on a service learning project.
DPS educators from McAuliffe International School, McAuliffe at Manual, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy and Skinner Middle School spent their summer break traveling to Nairobi, Kenya on a service learning project.

For ten educators from McAuliffe International School, McAuliffe Manual, Skinner Middle School and Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy, summer break meant traveling to Kenya on a service learning project.

During their stay in Nairobi, the DPS educators journeyed an hour each way every day to work with and learn from other educators and students. The communities of Thigio and Kamulu welcomed them as they painted schools, went on home visits with the children, shared teaching strategies with teachers, and provided much-needed materials and furniture for classrooms.

Thank you to Carla Frenzel, Dusty Starr, Linsey Olesiak, Cris Cardenas, Maggie Flynn, Matt Schweiterman, Lisa Strock, Kirsten Murphy, Rhea Lynn Anderson and Deb Maruyama for sharing this experience with the DPS community!
