Teacher: John Eby
John studied natural science in college and has an avid interest in native plants. He has been teaching science in Richmond for 15 years and is currently teaching science in grades 7 and 8. He has also set up and maintains a greenhouse at Adams Middle School. John is excited about the knowledge and resources that the project will bring to his classes. "Not only will I learn techniques and information, but students will be actively engaged in a science class with a valuable real world connection. I would like to incorporate the methods and information that I learn through this project into an ongoing study of the biodiversity in the surrounding area (school grounds and neighboring Wildcat Canyon)."
We are pleased to also be working with Marilyn Gonzalez and Saveth Soun who teach Language Arts at the 7th grade level. The integration of student science activities with those in their Language Arts classroom enhances the learning experiences and reflects the importance of communication skills in science.
