Danielle Lerro

To increase student engagement in the sciences and arts, and to integrate families and community members into the lifeblood of the school, Ms. Lerro and her colleagues will introduce the multidisciplinary project “Garden of Dreams in the Bronx.” Students and educators will create a vegetable garden to be used by the school and community and use it as a scientific laboratory and greening project. Cultivating growing spaces will allow students to broaden their hands-on experience in science, math, and the arts.
