2.5: January 5-9

Fifth Graders and Parents,
Happy New Year! あけまして おめでとう ございます!
Thank you so much for brightening my winter holiday with such thoughtful and generous gifts. Sushi, plants, movies and tea are my favorite things, and most importantly, things I am able to share with family and friends. 

Systems Thinking Opportunity for Fifth Graders, July 13-17
I’m looking for five responsible, curious, and ambitious fifth graders to teach a systems thinking lesson to a mixture of students from different states, countries, and grade levels (K-6) this summer. Together we will come up with new lessons and also use lessons we have practiced in class. I will be present at all times to assist when needed.

Please let me know if you are interested and available. The time for drop off and pick up can be flexible to accommodate busy schedules and to avoid traffic.

Please click the link below for more information. The link will be updated and specific early spring.
