Visitors Support Learning
Oct 10, 2019
It is not uncommon to find visitors at Villa Madonna Academy. Our students' education is enhanced by guests who come to share their expertise and experiences. Kindergarten students recently enjoyed visitors during their unit on community helpers. A nurse practitioner, a police officer, and firefighters (photo above) talked about their jobs and showed the tools they use. Through the year, K-12 students have had visitors from various careers, online safety experts, servant leaders, actors, artists, and more.
Guest speakers serve many purposes in a classroom. They help students satisfy their curiosity about the world around them. Speakers can help explain difficult topics or bring a new and different viewpoint into conversations. They also expose students to a variety of careers. If you have interest in sharing your career, expertise, or skills with the students at Villa, please contact either the elementary school counselor, Gabrielle Wuebben at firstname.lastname@example.org or the high school guidance counselor at email@example.com.
