We are all connected, we are all affected
Ms. Eubanks has been teaching in area Catholic Schools for the past 18 years. She mainly teaches science, but also has had the opportunity to teach religion and to administer to the Student Government, Builders Club and the Green Team. she has adopted a saying “We are all connected, we are all affected” and believes that we are called to be active in our community.
She is thrilled to be part of the Everglades Origami project, because it connects science and the preservation awareness of the Everglades to not only community bonding, but also to making art out of used papers, which is a green up-cycle approach. Eubanks was honored this past year to be part of the Everglades Curriculum Development Committee and was encouraged to learn another way to build a stronger awareness of the unique Everglades beauty and the need to be active participants in preservation.
She proudly boasts the efforts that her 8th grade and some the Marine Science students have put forth on this project. “It has been a pleasure to watch my students get quiet and focus on paper folding and creating. It has been a time for them to put away the iPads and to talk and learn from one another”. Eubanks states that this project has and will continue to be a blessing and so many thanks to Kristine and Lynn at M+G Foundation for making these connections possible.
