Great Day In Mt. Carmel Pt.2

I can’t say enough about this little intermediate school In Mt. Carmel, Illinois. Built in the late 1950’s N.I.C.E (which stands for North Intermediate Center of Education) has such a feel to it and a warm, inviting character that is often not found in new schools.

Day #2 brought me into the other two classrooms of the third grade. These kids are not only very creative, they are smarter than their ages. I have loved hearing their answers to questions I ask and the many stories about their pets at home. When I ask about cats and getting scratched, there is always one student who has a scare and has to show the class.

Halfway through my week here and I will tell you that this place is special. Kind, considerate and more or less, an old school kind of school in the days where buildings and classrooms have no character, this place is still going strong!
