Tara brings passion and a deep understanding of service learning, rooted in years of experience, to her training. Her training builds bridges from theory to implementation while generously sharing her resources and knowledge to ensure our success. Tara works with the whole school (administration, teachers, students, and SL leaders) to build a sustainable program that is embedded in the curriculum and tied to the mission. She energized a faculty on a Friday afternoon, no easy feat, leaving them with a desire to learn more about SL and to become more involved. I cannot recommend Tara highly enough.
Service Learning…What an aspiration to shoot for! After attending both morning and afternoon sessions presented by Tara Barton and Chris McBride, I have a beginning knowledge of the scope of this approach to Service within both the school and community beyond and possible curricular connections! Thanks AISA for such a great learning experience and excellent presenters. Certainly one of the best conferences I have ever attended in over 25 years of education!
