What a blessing it is to serve as an elementary science teacher in the same school I attended as a child! Our school, located in a small town in Northern Appalachia, was founded when Coal was King. But as the steel and coal industries vanished, so did many of the residents. Those who remain hold onto strong ethnic and family ties. Presently, our school serves a residential population of approximately 4,100 in a 68 square mile radius. The area is economically challenged. Recent state budget cuts have taken their toll, as well. In spite of these challenges, our 4th-6th grade science program is flourishing. During the 2017-2018 school year, 100% of our 4th grade students scored "proficient" or "advanced" on state testing. This is a source of pride within the school and in the community. As a teacher, I would love to see our science program continue to grow.
