Learning in action: Making a difference at local schools

I still remember the first time I stepped foot into Brayton Elementary School in North Adams. After weeks of searching for the perfect job with the Center for Learning in Action (CLiA), I was given the opportunity to work at Brayton as both a science fellow and a first grade buddy. This meant that once a week, I would eat lunch with the first graders as well as play with them at recess. Then, on Fridays, I would teach some of those same first graders science.
