There are fourteen elementary schools in my district. This equates to about 7000 students in grades K - 6. That's a lot of kiddos in need of a quality education in science.
So far, five of these elementaries have invited me to work with their staff. It doesn't sound like lot, but it's still five more than last year. I made a presentation of the second one today. Teachers seem welcoming---even relieved---to have some simple ideas that can make a difference in their classrooms.
I sometimes feel overwhelmed with the "Curriculum Specialist" part of my job. The classroom has its own issues, but at least it's a small world that you are familiar with. How on earth do I support several hundred classrooms?
One school at a time, I guess.
