rural education

Kara Schmidt (above) teaches students in Throop Elementary School in Paoli. Her work is part of a partnership between Orange County schools and Thrive Orange County, a “coalition of community leaders and citizens committed to creating a safe, stable, nurturing community for all.” What started in 2019 with Schmidt teaching just one class for two days a week now has her teaching 40 classes, kindergarten through 6th grade, at schools in Paoli and Orleans. | Photo by Faith Gammon
