GFI Fellow - Class of 2018
Master's student, public health
Caryssa will work closely with The Seeds to Plate Program (StP) for this fellowship role. The Program has developed an academic curriculum that has been taught successfully for the past six years at Mark Twain Middle School (MTMS), a Title 1, ethnically diverse school within the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The curriculum, embedded in MTMS’s core academic program (Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies), promotes healthy eating and physical activity habits, by providing in-class instruction and hands-on gardening experience.
