We use an abundance of inquiry-based, hands-on, cross-curricular activities. We also LOVE to co-teach. We will frequently bring our classes together into one room and teach them together. The kids love to interact with other classes and they enjoy seeing their teachers have fun together.
Together we have: Flown weightless on the Zero G (a.k.a. Vomit Comet) and achieved eight total minutes of weightlessness (see Mel holding the sign and Gerdy's long hair achieving new heights): Walked the model's catwalk for Teacher in the Spotlight. Worked alongside Ecologists in Skidaway and Sapelo Island GA. Mel was honored by being featured as Atlanta's 11 Alive Class Act Teacher of the Month where she was interviewed and her class appeared on the morning news!
Gerdy: B.S. Wildlife Science & M.Ed. Biology both from Auburn University Mel: B.S. Biology & B.S. Biology Education both from Kennesaw University
