Connections Programs

When I am on the Island I can actually take a step back because the Thompson Island staff are so amazing and over the years I find that I am actually learning from them new ways to teach and work with the kids.
-Ms. Loughnane, 6th grade science teacher at Young Achievers
Before I went to the Island I was shy and never raised my hand in class but when I was on the Island I started to realize that my group was really listening to me and thought I had really good ideas…this helped me get the confidence when I got back to school to raise my hand and now I do it all the time.

The work on Thompson Island shows how important learning in the real world can be for young people. More schools should partner with Thompson Island education center…
