My Students

The students of our high school are very community oriented and take grade pride and enjoyment in any opportunity to give back to their school, town and neighboring areas. We are a rural school, but our kids come from a variety of backgrounds. One quality that they all share, however, is the willingness to help others.

Throughout the school year, a number of different school groups take part in community service projects that include everything from performing for elderly residents at a nursing home to serving food at a shelter to running after school programs for small children.

I love how willing so many of our kids are to help others and to do so voluntarily.

My Project

The hope is that through a hands-on experience the kids will learn about a local ecosystem and the biotic and abiotic factors that allow the system to function. This is explored in two different classes I teach. In my biology class, students conduct a week long creek project in which they do detailed measurements, conduct chemical tests on the water and collect specimens to examine. In my advanced biology class, students collect and identify insects in order to conduct a biotic index assessment in which they use macroinvertebrates to determine water quality.

I have been using the same pairs of waders for the past twenty years and several of them have developed holes, despite many attempts to patch them.

The new waders will allow the kids the opportunity to get into the water and explore safely and stay dry.
