Welcome to 2022 -2023 School Year!

    My name is Annettea Mills (Millie) and I have been a Paraeducator in Richmond County for over 30 years. I love my JOB! I am committed to being a part of the educational team working closely with my teachers through collaboration and support daily at DLE! I hope to give my students a love for learning that they should always pursue and enjoy. Instilling a desire to learn about themselves and the world around them is worth achievement and honor. I have a passion for students' education and being a Pareducator is an incredible journey. Each year I have learned more as an individual, reflecting on my daily experiences with students, parents, staff and faculty.Each year brings new experiences to enhance and lead in the coming year. 

    Welcome to the Horticulture/ Agriculture Lab! Where gardening is FUN!

    "A Garden is a Grand Teacher."

    This is where students use their learned gardening skills to enhance their learning experience in today's world. I am aiming to strengthen our students' understanding by integrating the gardening world and all of the experiences and more into their classroom goals daily at DLE!!!

    This year our Lab is EXCITED to add a new addition, Horticulture/Agriculture, which is a course for the DLE students to explore gardening, garden preparation, garden tools, seeds and soil and much more all in one curriculum. The DLE Horticulture/ Agriculture Lab offers an innovative approach to learning in which students use problem solving skills to tackle hands-on learning activities daily!

    I truly believe that memories are made when hands are involved and I love it when we are making garden memories, whether it is using the garden to learn, do a craft or harvest together!
