Creature Teacher Animals came to TJE

Yesterday our students learned interesting facts about some exotic animals thanks to the Creature Teacher program sponsored by our PTA.

They had an opportunity to see and/or touch a baby kangaroo, a chinchilla, and a sonic hedgehog. The students also got an up close look at a giant lizard and a 7' boa both from South America.

We were able to see the kinkajou from a distance as it sat on the instructor's shoulder. Some very brave students were chosen to hold a Mexican tarantula. The teachers made great assistants as they held a few animals for students to touch.

Thank you Thelma Jones PTA for providing this experience for our students! See more animal pictures here.
