Supervisor Daisy Morales Teaches Students The Importance of Water Conservation at OCPS Teach-In Day

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – The Honorable Daisy Morales, an elected Supervisor with the Orange Soil and Water Conservation District, which is a Subdivision of the State of Florida, was among public and private officials participating in The Foundation For Orange County Public Schools Teach-In 2017 program.

Supervisor Morales was invited by three Orange County Public Schools to participate in the annual teach-in event. She selected Walker Middle School.

“It’s important to help students think about ways humans use freshwater and how we can conserve this natural resource, especially in Orange County,” Supervisor Morales told Florida National News in a phone interview.

For thirty minutes, Supervisor Morales taught students about the importance of Water Conservation using the Enviroscape Model provided by Orange County Environmental Protection Division. The portable table-top model allows students to explore conservation concepts through hands-on activities by demonstrating pollution sources and their prevention.

In partnership with Orange County Environmental Protection Division, Supervisor Daisy Morales has provided water conservation demonstrations to hundreds of students across Orange County.

According to the Foundation (OCPS), each November, in celebration of American Education Week, the Foundation brings business and civic leaders into the classrooms — in a fun and engaging way — to talk with students about academics, careers and the future. This year’s teach-in theme is “Great Public Schools – A Basic Right and Our Responsibility.”

Some volunteers read books to pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Some teach practical, personal skills to high school students, such as managing a checking account and using credit cards wisely. Others involve entire middle school classes in projects like a mock election. Some give demonstrations using musical instruments or scientific equipment to 5th graders.

Last year, over 4,300 volunteers made nearly 6,800 presentations in 165 schools. What an amazing impact!
