Pamela Meyer teaches a Multi Age Class (1st and 2nd) class at
Woodlake Elementary School. She is representing the State of Louisiana in VFW’s National Citizenship Education Teacher
She attended the Louisiana VFW Mid-Winter Conference held in Alexandria,
Louisiana on January 28th and accepted her State award.
The program is to recognize teachers who teach citizenship education
topics and promote American’s history, traditions and institutions effectively.
In Ms. Meyer’s class (Multi-Age 1st & 2nd), her students are
given experiences in citizenship by creating their own mini-society, Meyerville. Meyerville mimics elements from the real
world for children to learn responsibility, economics and government. Teamwork, peacemaking, community and finance are a few
skills that are practiced each day.
