Suzanne Volpe is a representative for the Algonkian District on the Board of Supervisors. Mrs. Cox brought her here to participate in Educator for a Day with her Earth Science and Chemistry classes on February 16th.

Educator for a Day gives elected officials a chance to experience the education system from the spot of a teacher. Supervisor Volpe went to an Elementary School last year for this new program.

Volpe talked to the classes about many real-world issues she deals with. WRTAC, the Water Resources Technical Advisory Commission, is used to evaluate different water resources. The local water pollution issues she has been dealing with for many years in her Supervisor position.

The hidden lane landfill was the biggest topic of discussion within the classes. It involved chemistry and earth science, so both classes were engaged differently with the real issue.

In 2012, the Board of Supervisors did a study on the Broad run watershed. WRTAC overlooked this study. Both classes analyzed the water shed and the results of the study with Volpe.

Volpe said that the work she has done with her years on the Board of Supervisors has taught her a lot.  She also is glad she had the opportunity to experience teaching in front of a class about something she works with everyday.

Given the recent events in Parkland, Volpe said, “Schools take the lead, but I know there is already work being done in the Superintendent’s proposed budget for security enhancements in the capital improvement program”.

She is sensitive to the topic and takes school safety very seriously. Volpe says she believes LCPS schools are safe and we have already taken more precautions compared to other school systems in other states.
