There are few classroom events that are more exciting than new ideas  generated by students. But we can not have new ideas without thinking and  we can not think without knowing. The environment around us is challenging and we build our knowledge by understanding the habits and characteristics of the biotic as well as the abiotic members. After we have established our relationship to our environment and know who we are, then we can have Good Ideas.

These pages were developed, and are under constant revision, to facilitate computer and Internet use in the classroom. A secondary purpose is to provide timely information to students' parents; they are able to review curriculum topics, examine projects, browse through student work and familiarize themselves with the same technology their children are using.

 I am a middle school science teacher and love going on fieldtrips. I am active in my community and have given presentations at CAST and NSTA. I attend workshops during the summers in order to keep my science courses current and relevant. Theater and medieval history, particularly Brother Cadfael mysteries, are my avocations and I am an experienced quilter when time allows: it certainly calms the nerves!
