Bishop Kelley High School seniors Hallie Cole and Isabella Desbarres are back at the School of Saint Mary.
They are teaching Theology class to Mrs. Bloomfield’s Second Graders in the first hour of the school day. Their work in the school is part of a class the girls are taking at Bishop Kelley and taught by parishioner Jane Bender.
Hallie and Isabella keep their class moving with a variety of activities to engage all their students’ learning styles. Our second graders learned about Saint Nicholas of Myrna through a brief biography, an art project, and a taste of candy.
Both girls have a good rapport with the students, having quickly learned their names. Mrs. Bloomfield and Mrs. Craig remain in the room and say they are delighted with the student teachers. When a student asked for more information about Saint Nicholas, Isabella and Hallie found an online storybook that gave the students more information.
