SXSWedu 2017 Featured Session Classroom to Community: Student Service Learning Jahana Hayes CCSSO – 2016 Natl Teacher of the Year Through service learning, 2016 National Teacher of the Year Jahana Hayes expands her classroom walls into the community. Community service projects build skills and empowerment, and provide students the opportunity to transfer the critical thinking and problem solving skills taught in the classroom into the real world. It also allows students to know the power of being the giver. Students build a sense of increased self-worth and self-sufficiency. This, in turn, can lead to academic success. Hayes will share best practices for engaging students in service learning and encourage educators to develop plans of their own to expand the network of teachers engaging in this valuable practice.
