RICHARDSON - Kim Aman from Moss Haven Elementary School has been a key supporter and true champion for the best project in the school's history - The Moss Haven Farm. Started in 2012, Kim has been teaching students about the importance of the environment, how things grow, and the life cycle of plants and animals. She also introduced Richardson ISD's first chicken coop program. The students love putting time and effort into keeping the farm alive and well.
Along with educating students about plants and animals, Kim also created a composting system and educated students about the new compost cart available. By making and using compost, the campus becomes one step greener.
Moss Haven Elementary School recently conducted a survey to see how the Moss Haven Farm was impacting students, staff, and their families. The results were fantastic. It showed that many had implemented environmentally friendly habits not only at school but at home.
As one of the current Moss Haven Elementary School teachers said: "Kim is larger than life with our students. She is their cheerleader, their confident, their support and bridge to success. There is no such word as "can't" with Kim. Her "can do" and "will do" attitude is contagious both in the gardens at the Moss Haven Farm and with her special needs students."
Congratulations Kim Aman for being one of the 2013 Eco-Educators!
