Thoreau MS Seventh Grade Teacher Enlists Guest Speakers to Keep Students Motivated
English teacher Michelle Gabro keeps her Thoreau Middle seventh grade students motivated and engaged with a series of guest speakers—who also happen to be relatives— to talk about their jobs and read to her students. So far, Gabro has signed up a school counselor, a psychology teacher, a Department of Defense employee, a recent college graduate, a surgeon, and an employee of a multinational professional services firm. Gabro says the response has been positive and she plans to continue inviting guests for her seventh-grade classes. Contact news liaison Andrea Hager at email@example.com.
