Student-teachers Spread the Mutt-i-grees® Message
Shannon Coulter, Mutt-i-grees® Peer Trainer and teacher at Fenton Avenue Charter School in Lake View Terrace, CA, is also a part-time Child Development Department faculty member at University of LaVerne and Moorpark College.
This summer, her University of LaVerne student teachers participated in a Service Learning Project integrating social-emotional lessons in their assigned early childhood classrooms and connecting the children to a community organization in need.
The student teachers chose an animal rescue organization, Rescue Me, Inc., and presented lessons plans to the children about the plight of Mutt-i-grees®. They worked with children to create dog and cat toys and collected donations from generous families and staff members.
Everything was presented to Rescue Me, Inc at the Camarillo Animal Shelter’s 9th Annual Dog-Gone Cat-a-Strophic Hugs, Slurps & Slobbers Adoptathon. Everyone had a dog-gone good time!
