Hi all!! Well - they call me the rat lady. I work as an elementary school teacher but I have started my own after school program called Rat Pack Learning where I teach young kids about rats!! I bring 10 rats to school with me and teach kids about proper handling and care, the icky stereotypes that exist and how we can change those with an open mind, and we work on problem solving exercises while we train our rats and build them mazes! The program has been a huge success and I'm happy to say that I have changed a lot of grown ups minds about rats! Their first reaction is usually, "ewww....rats?!" Then they meet them and say, "oh! Aww...they're actually cute!" Well duh!
I'm so excited to be a member of this forum! I know I can learn a lot from all of the experienced rat owners out there! Thanks for having me!
