Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are filled with inquiring minds. At St. Stephen Catholic School in East Grand Rapids, some of the youngest students produce a podcast in order to share their curiosity with the world. They call it “First Grade Wonders”.
In each episode, these 1st graders ask a community member some of the questions they think about. Their Feb. 26 episode features Dave Faber, superintendent of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
Talking with Mr. Faber, the students learned about some of the things a superintendent does. They also got to know some of his favorite things in addition to his professional role.
Hear their interview in the podcast below or at this link.
Previous “First Grade Wonders” guests have included Jill Annable, assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction, and technology integration.
