In elementary school, you want to find your nitch, develop those relationships and learn-learn-learn! I was fortunate enough to get into a program in 5th grade at Mamaroneck Avenue School called "Actionville".
Thanks to social media, the main man, our amazing teacher / leader, Donald Tedesco chronicles his path in his book, Actionville: "Where Learning Is Made A Joy", to achieve his goal of making education fun and engaging, which he did!
As a student, we worked on varying levels according to our abilities, with an amazing staff, who taught us in this creative environment!
THIS is where I learned about the electoral college, Missouri was my state, we traveled, explored and even "went to the Opera". Yes, that's me in the upper left looking "opera-ish" at 10 years old!
I'll NEVER forget Actionville and now I can reflect back with this literary creation!
