Whether it's puzzles, blowing up a balloon, playing with rice, or dressing up as doctors, toddlers in this class are teaching students at Bay Port High School, what it's really like working with toddlers.

Teacher Sarah Broehm said "it can be very overloading, sensory wise."

However, for ninth grader, Emma Deppeler this class, is just a stroll in the park.

"I have six brothers, and one sister, they're all younger then me," said Emma.

Emma and other students are seeing if teaching or working with young children, is something they'd like to pursue beyond high school.

"It gives students an opportunity to learn more about children, interact on a level they are very comfortable with it gives them the opportunity to experience children, observe, and plan activities that are age appropriate," said Broehm.

Senior Addison Kay, said this class has been very helpful, "I'm interested in doing something with younger kids, getting to spend more time with them, provides more opportunity to do what I enjoy."

Teacher Sarah Broehm, couldn't be happier.
