Will, M. (2017, October 03). This Rural Teacher Brings the World Into the Classroom Through ‘Phone-a-Friend’.

Amanda Jones teaches high school science classes in Poyen, Ark.—a tiny, rural town about an hour outside of Little Rock with a population of 290. Her school is so small that she teaches multiple subjects in one year, including chemistry, physics, biology, and environmental science. She can’t know everything, she said. But she’s determined to make sure her students hear from experts in the outside world.
