For some of them, growing and gaining strength for the trip began, not in a river, but in a sixth-grade classroom in Van Buren County.</p><p>Jane Larson began teaching at Paw Paw Middle School 16 years ago. Last year, she joined a program created by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources called “Salmon in the Classroom”.
