Bob Bouffard, at right, addresses a group of students at Largo Central Elementary School during the Great American Teach-In on November 14. His talk about fossils was accompanied by a display, which included a tooth from the mouth of a mammoth, an extinct elephant with hairy skin once found throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Bouffard was one of many presenters who volunteered to share information on their careers, hobbies or interests at elementary, middle and high schools throughout the county that day. The event, part of Pinellas County Schools' annual American Education Week celebration, has been sponsored by Progress Energy since 1994.
Paul and Janet Fadden of Largo were among the many presenters of specials programs at Largo Central Elementary School on November 14. The occasion was Pinellas County Schools' 14th annual Great American Teach-In. The Faddens, shown above wearing Seminole Indian regalia, were there to introduce the students to Native American culture. Paul Fadden is of Chippewa heritage.
