My Students

My students are eager to have authentic learning experiences that engage them in real world applications of science. As a school we ask our students to engage with community experts and find authentic ways to communicate their learning. More than ever, we need our students to be able to respond to changes in our natural environment and the stresses they place on our communities and to take action.

My students are looking for ways to answer the call to action.

My Project

This fall we dove deeply into the question, "How has the Gulf of Maine changed and why does it matter?" The investigation included an exploration of the impacts of river dams on anadromous fish, such as Atlantic salmon. A class visit to the Saccarappa Falls dam removal project on the Presumpcot River a few miles from our school helped us to understand the significance of restorative work along our rivers.

The last remaining wild Atlantic salmon populations in the United States are found only in Maine and listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.

In collaboration with the Atlantic Salmon Federation my students will be raising Atlantic salmon in our classroom this winter and releasing fry in the nearby Presumpscot River as a way to do our part in restoring this sea-run fish to its' historic spawning grounds.
