The Exeter Paraprofessional Association has planted a perennial garden at the Park Street Playground in Exeter.
“We’re calling it a ‘para-ennial’ garden,” said Paula Gailing . “We put a bee house in it because our school focuses on the 4-B’s: Be kind. Be safe. Be your best. Be respectful.”
Exeter Paraprofessional Association members, pictured (from left to right) include Denise Dionne, Karen Henebry (garden designer), Margie Matlack (secretary), Sue Eno (VP), Deb McLarnon, Paula Gailing (Co-President), and Martha Brouillette-Martel (project organizer).
Whether you’re a veteran educator or newbie, this school year has been a voyage into uncharted waters. The “para-ennial” garden is proof that even in the toughest of times, educators are creative, innovative, and inspired by their students and each other.
