Getting ready for a new school year

August 23rd will mark the beginning of another school year at Streamwood High School. On August 25th all students will return to the classrooms and start a learning adventure that will take them into the summer of the new year 2011.

I am the eternal optimist when it comes to learning taking place in the classroom and my ability to connect effectively with students learning science. I have plans for some extraordinary inquiry-based investigations that my students will capitalize upon and greatly increase their understanding of the world that they live in.

I am moving forward this year on a cross-disciplinary science project called The Climate Change Project. It will encompass and utilize all of my most recent projects on sustainable living, alternative energy and energy conservation. It will be a more focused attempt to document the effects of climate change upon our environment, which resonates from the effects of global warming and increased carbon dioxide gas concentrations in the atmosphere.
