The educational impact of Hurricane Katrina is not limited to those living in Louisiana or Mississippi. In a recent conversation with Chris Marshall, currently a middle school teacher in the Houston area (soon to be a Discovery Educator Network Field Manager), I realized the impact of educators throughout the country. Chris alone has recently added six students from these disaster-affected areas to his class rolls. I have personally heard similar stories in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and others.
Have you, your school or community pitched in to support people affected by Hurricane Katrina? If so, share your story!
