Holly Springs students hold a snake.Scaly Adventures brought excitement to Holly Springs Elementary School with an in-house field trip, where students explored the world of reptiles. The fascinating lesson integrated STEM concepts, creating an attitude for success, overcoming self-limiting fears, respect for self/others, understanding purpose and positive self-esteem.

According to P.E. teacher Katie Walls, students found the overall experience fascinating.

“This show brought real life experiences to my Physical Education program. One student was amazed to hold a snake for the first time. I design my program and implement units to help students acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and confidence needed to maintain a physically active and healthy lifestyle. My goal is to influence students to become a well-rounded independent child.”

While the reptiles were very intriguing to students, the message from Scaly Adventures taught them about discovering a life of encouragement and purpose. The team, Rick and Tanya Curren, are experts in reaching and inspiring young audiences to DREAM big, DARE to try and DO the impossible. In fact, the couple has their own TV series with 60 episodes.

"Our mission is to help young people to thoughtfully examine self-purpose and then develop strategies to help overcome self-limiting thoughts. We can help them to achieve a much higher quality of life and performance.”
