Grow Education “Faces of Food” in New Bedford: Lori Silveira
Meet Lori Silveira, New Bedford Public Schools Elementary Educator for 30 years.
This is my fourth year at Irwin Jacobs ES. My top teaching moments include leading the Geography Club, taking a field trip to Fenway Farms and touring Fenway Park, and turning our classroom into a New Bedford Escape Room for PBL(Project Based Learning). The first year we moved to our new school building our classroom became Worm World as we had our own red worm bin for vermiculture study. We enjoyed walking to Kilburn Mill for the indoor Farmers Market each week. The local honey sticks were a favorite!
