Place-Based Education Program Brings the Environment to Students

Allison Baldwin knows many of the students at Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena likely will never have the opportunity to experience the wetlands around Galveston Bay.

“We don’t have as ready access to the aquatic environment that a lot of the students down in Galveston do,” she said.

The same can be said for Hailey Louviere’s students at Dr. Kirk Lewis Career & Technical High School, also part of Pasadena ISD.

“A lot of them, they’re not going to leave the Pasadena and Houston area,” Louviere said.
