began 100 Mile Club
during the 1992-93 school year.
taught a class for students in 4th-6th grade.
The students in her
class were brilliant and EXTREMELY energetic.
Some of the students were diagnosed with ADHD, some had behavior disorders, some were uninspired and angry, and some just didn't want to be at school at all.
How would she
teach these little guys?
How could she
calm, center, inspire, and energize them all at the same time?
The task was overwhelming for such a young and inexperienced teacher.
started with what she
had been riding horses since she
was 8 years old.
did know about horses was this: If you have to train a high-energy horse, you often begin with a process called lunging.
The students came to Kara
absolutely filled with anxiety about failure.
Along with a t-shirt, the 25 Mile Club Member gets his or her name on the 25 Mile Club Member web page, and a personal certificate and note from Ms. Lubin.
Kara also integrated the use of The Pyramid of Success, designed by the legendary basketball coach and 100 Mile Club supporter, Coach John Wooden.
Kara is now a Resource Specialist and no longer teaches a class of her own, but The 100 Mile Club is continuing to improve, grow, and is more popular than ever.
Now in its 16th year, 100 Mile Club
is gaining support from community businesses, local and national foundations, community members, and families of participating students.
