If Kitty Boyan's students grow up to be polluters and litterers it won't be for lack of a good role model.
Boyan, a teacher at Clarksville Elementary School, developed the school's outdoor environmental studies area, where students learn about the workings of nature in anopen-air classroom.
But even inside, Boyan doesn't let her students forget about the great outdoors.
Environment posters line the walls. Boyan has evenmanaged to teach her students that a tarantula can be beautiful. Oneof the hairy creatures sits in a cage on a window ledge in the room.
