This week’s LIMELIGHT SCHOOL OF THE WEEK IS……Long Mill Elementary School in Youngsville, NC
Hello Scientists, before I get into some detail about our Limelight school of the week, I wanted to tell everyone about a funny and embarrassing story that happened just before I arrived at the Limelight school.
My wife was out of town, so my mother had to take my children to school that morning in order for me to begin my classes on time. I needed to stop by her house, which was close by, to drop something off and as I opened the door, her security system went off. Now, I do know her code, but was not expecting this loud, obnoxious sound and I panicked. I couldn’t remember a thing. To make a long story short, the alarm company called the authorities and I waited 10 min for them to show. After no body arrived, I left and headed to the school. My mom arrived home shortly after to a Sheriff waiting and escorted her into the house to make sure nobody was in her home. I have to say, that had it been a true emergency, I am not sure that I am thrilled that it took over ten minutes for anyone to arrive at the home
So that’s how my day began and thank goodness it got so much better once I arrived at Long Mill Elementary,” on time I might add.
Our lesson, Newton in a Nutshell, was a hit with the 3rd graders. We had so much fun learning about and exploring Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion. As the second class of the day was about to end, one of the students calls out “I would rather stay here and do more activities than go to lunch.” All I can say is, “LOVE IT.”
As I teach, I really enjoy speaking with and getting to know the teachers that I am helping in each and every school that I go to. As I was talking with one of these wonderful teachers at Long Mill Elementary, she stated that, “This is so much better that other field trips. It is so much easier having you come in and teach than to load up on a bus, get permission forms signed and returned, make sure that all the students have lunches and keep up with them.” It is exhilarating to hearing such positive comments from both students and teachers about our programs.
Thank you so much Long Mill Elementary School for allowing High Touch High Tech to be part of your curriculum.😊
Until next time, this is Meteor Martin blasting off!
