Feeding families; building community.

We are asking rural communities to share how COVID-19 is impacting them and how teachers and teacher-leaders are adapting in the face of nationwide school closures. Read below for a great story from John Kuhn of Mineral Wells, TX.

"We provide grab n go lunches and breakfasts daily Monday-Friday. We facilitate virtual long-distance lesson plans using high tech online and low tech packet approaches. We do have virtual spirit weeks. We have checked out all mobile hotspots that we own and have ordered 30 more. We’ve received donations that will allow us to neck out another 30."

Thank you to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for supporting the I Am A Rural Teacher national advocacy campaign in collaboration with the National Rural Education Association and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
