According to Cynthia Lynne Cobb, third-grade teacher at Little Snake River Valley School in Baggs, her own difficulties with school as a child have given her insight into what some of her students are experiencing. She individualizes instruction for a variety of learning styles with hands-on programs such as Mission Geography, in which students use data and images from the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) to learn concepts such as remote sensing and map/image interpretation. For a unit on frontier life, Miss Cobb coordinates a "Homesteaders Day" at a point on the Oregon Trail north of Baggs, during which students, parents and the community dress in costumes, play games, and cook and eat food of the period. She frequently integrates technology into her curriculum and has trained her colleagues to do the same.
