In Jeff Evans' first year as the site coordinator for the Service-Learning Waste reduction Project at Mission San Jose High School, he has laid down the foundation for environmental awareness through multipleprojects. Last month, with the help of the Health teacher, Mr. Evans' led a waste audit with over 200 freshmen health students.
These students then presented their findings to the rest of the freshmen class in preparation for a Waste-Free Lunch Week. The waste-free week, in which students were encouraged to bring reusable packaging for lunches, was part of a larger inaugural "Green-Service Week" put on by the school's SLWRP team of teachers and students.
Congratulations, Mr. Evans on being selected as EarthTeam's Teacher of the Month for April 2012, and thank you for partnering with EarthTeam on our Waste Action Project!
