Driver Dave Teaches Kids

Everyone knows how stressful moving is. You have to worry about so many details: closing on 2 properties, dealing with a mortgage, finding a dependable moving company and the list goes on. At Humboldt, we have found that the most important things in life are sometimes never really thought about during the move, THE KIDS! The idea of moving to a new place with new people and having to leave everything you know behind can really create a lot of anxiety for kids. With this in mind, Humboldt has brought the Discover America program to local schools for the last 2 years. Discover America is an interactive lesson, created by United Van Lines, that teaches kids about geography, arithmatic, reading and writing by having “Driver Dave” give the children a quick lesson about his job. On top of the educational value, the program teaches kids that moving can be an exciting expereince and can create new opportunities.
