Florida Teacher has Students use Six Words to Share their Hurricane Irma Stories

Jon Mundorf (Zeta Lambda–Bowling Green State ’98) was featured in the London, England-based Daily Mail newspaper, in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Mundorf, a seventh-grade teacher at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School in Gainesville, Florida, shared the reactions and feelings of the members of his class after he asked the students to summarize Hurricane Irma on Post-It notes, sharing their thoughts and feelings using only six words each. The paper published some of the Post-It notes, which ranged from uplifting reflections about the human spirit (“Irma was strong, we are stronger”) to more realistic assessments of what hurricanes bring, like “Water jugs, insufficient plugs, hundred bugs.” View the article HERE.
