Default Thanks from Jim at Backroads Metal Detecting

Jim Parry from Backroads Metal Detecting here.
I am new to the forum and look forward to learning from and being inspired by you all. Thank you!

I am a school teacher and share the many lessons learned from metal detecting with my students. I lead REACH classes at Stewartville High School/Middle School in MN. REACH stands for Relationships, Education, Accountability, Character, and Hard work. These classes are for students in grades 6-12 who have academic struggles brought on because of "life struggles"...poverty, neglect, abuse, and other trauma (Covid struggle now included in that). One focus area of REACH is to find good, wholesome activities for students to participate in. Metal detecting has been one of those connections between me and students, both in my classes and in other at-risk youth programs I help lead in SE MN.
More about REACH, including awards and media attention we’ve received can be found at

Check out and consider subscribing to my channel if you like what you see.
