Recent support includes a $1,000 grant and Green Classroom training for faculty and staff.
Mr. Carl Hansel, theology teacher, completed his Green Classroom Professional (GCP) certification through the U.S. Green Building Councils. The GCP certificate program provides educators and school staff with the knowledge to identify what supports or impedes healthy, resource-efficient, and environmentally sustainable learning spaces. Hansel believes this program will be a great tool for other teachers. Soon, two more Carmel Catholic teachers on the Green Team will complete this certification as the school continues on its journey to zero waste with the support of the Illinois Green Schools Project.
