Congratulations to Gwinnett Master Gardener Rosalie Tubre, whose Special Ed. Junior Master Gardener project at Peachtree Ridge High School has won the “National Achievement Award” from the National JMG (Jr. Master Gardener) Program. Rosalie and the Peachtree Ridge teacher working with the project will be traveling to Charleston WV to receive the award on October 14th at the International Master Gardener Conference.
Rosalie’s GCMC Project with Peachtree Ridge High School Special Ed. students encompassed two school years for the students to complete the 8 chapters in the curriculum where it would normally be achieved in one year by regular students.
Rosalie said ” I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to teach these young mentally challenged and/or disabled students. They learned a lot from me, but I too learned a lot from them”.
