But just how much can one teacher and a handful of students accomplish together? As it turns out, quite a lot! Stacey makes sure her students are fully engaged in learning, even outside the four walls of the classroom. Her units might take them to places as diverse as a theatre performance in Ashland or a cattle feedlot in Idaho. And yet Stacey finds a way to relate these lessons to each student’s experience or interests.
Stacey’s outstanding efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. She was recently named an Oregon Regional Teacher of the Year. She now qualifies as a finalist for the statewide Teacher of the Year title.
But, Stacey isn’t the only Regional Teacher of the Year representing rural Oregon. Read about another outstanding teacher, Melanie Friend from Ashwood School District.
Beyond the Classroom Walls
Stacey Martin ensures her students get plenty of time in the “real world,” relating their classroom lessons to their community. A unit on the cattle industry inspired several field trips, relating lessons from many subjects to an important aspect of life in Lake County.
Since my classroom is the school, and the district, I work to include as much outreach school-to-community as well as community-to-school as possible.— Stacey Martin, Adel School Teacher
Giving Back to Community
Adel students contribute to their community just as the community contributes to their education. They recently provided snacks during a mustang training exhibition at Beaty Butte Wild Horse training facility. They were also tasked with naming the horses, writing essays to explain their choices—a fun task that the students took very seriously!Learn more about Beaty Butte Wild Horses
