As you know, Ms. Hannah left Stoddert in April. The school recently hired Mr. Canada to be the new garden coordinator. You may recognize Mr. Canada, as he has been substituting and supporting the Stoddert community for several years.
Here is a message from Mr. Canada…
My name is Mr. Canada and this is my first year as the garden coordinator. Though I am originally from Charleston, West Virginia I have lived in Glover Park for more than 10 years. I have been a part of the Stoddert community since 2000, as substitute teacher and as a teacher intern in Ms Stevenson first grade class.
I hold both a Masters in Elementary Education from American University and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Iowa. I have managed a gardening architectural project in NorthEast DC. For the past nine year, I have been gardening/publicity director for the Outdoor Concert Series here in Glover Park. I am presently a summer volunteer for Glover Park and Burleith Farmer’s Market.
I simply love everything about gardens, student achievement, and community. I look forward to planting inspiration, kindness, and gratitude as a part of the Stoddert educational experience!
Don’t forget, the spring Farmer’s Market started and will be every Thursday after school. More info here.
