More Than The Assignment

By Jacob Whatley

A story on the incredible community of 7th and 8th graders at Lakewood Montessori Middle School. With amazing teachers and outstanding students, hear how this place has fostered an environment that helps not only each other but those outside. See how this group of kids are taught valuable life skills that extend beyond the classroom.

This was an interesting project for me. I am not a big fan of children and typically avoid them. Without this project, I would have never known of the work that was being done to help these kids grow in an age of overstimulation. I think it was a valuable experience and am glad to have had the opportunity to take part.
