I wanted to send along my thanks to you, Kat, Adam, and David for an
exceptional job with our teacher retreat last week. Everyone’s enthusiasm,
knowledge, and passion was enough to inspire us for years to come as we try
to establish a spirit of stewardship for the Chesapeake Bay in our classrooms.
I was thoroughly impressed with your thoughtful planning and purposeful
choice of activities. The pace of our days was perfect, and your flexibility met
the varied needs of the group.
Ultimately, your authentic relationship with the people of Smith Island is what
completely sold me on the CBF experience and made a mark on my heart.
The organization is clearly lucky to have you all as staff members, and we
are all fortunate to have spent time learning from and with you. Your impact
on my classroom begins tomorrow and will last as long as I am an educator.
Thanks, and best wishes to you all as you continue such important work!
Grade 4 Teacher, Cecilton Elementary School
In late October, CBF
educators spent three days
with Maryland Teachers of
the Year, getting them up
close and personal with the
Bay. This annual experience
is generously supported
by Northrup Grumman and
includes each county’s
Teacher of the Year. Cecil
County’s teacher is fourth
grade teacher Anne Highfield
from Cecilton Elementary
School (pictured below). After
her time with CBF, she sent in
this thank-you note to Norah
Carlos who ran the event.
