Meet Amy Schlatter! Amy began her career teaching a third-grade intervention class in Hamilton, Ohio. Having a special place in her heart for the mountains, she moved her skills to a different classroom in Ketchum, Idaho, where it quickly became apparent just how much nutrition affected her students’ performance. She is currently pursuing a passion by bringing nutrition education into the classroom. Through Nurture's school program, Amy comes into classrooms of Kindergarten through 2nd graders here at Bellevue Elementary and provides lessons on nutrition, healthy recipes, and encourages students to be mindful of eating from the colors of the rainbow! Just looks at these lessons from Bellevue Elementary School! For more information, click here for Nurture Idaho!
