Kathrine Walter, teacher at Battle Creek Middle School
“The students in Ferguson were very similar to our own students in Saint Paul. I realized that every student has a story and it’s important to get to know them individually. I’m working on that with my AVID students. I’m also having them get to know one another as well -- not just seeing themselves as classmates.” Kathrine Walter (pictured center), AVID teacher at Battle Creek Middle School who volunteered last summer helping students at a camp in Ferguson, Mo.
