Kristi Wehrspann NSF Teaching Partner

Grace Lutheran

Years Teaching:

Currently working on a Masters Degree in Elementary Education, emphasis on Literacy

Graduate Partner:
Eric Johnson

Special Accomplishments/Interests:
I am a teacher with a heart for the Jr. High age group. I enjoy the life and energy they bring to the school day. I have come to love the sciences with the diverse experiences they provide and the questions and thoughts they bring. As a school, we are continually looking at ways to improve our science program in order to enhance the overall education of our students.

How will you integrate an aspect of GK-12 and your partnership with graduate students into your classroom?
Eric is doing his research on the effects of earthquakes, specifically in mountain lakes.  He will be able to bring in ideas from his research once we get to the section on earthquakes, coming up in the next couple of weeks.

How has the GK-12 experience changed you, and how has your participation changed the GK-12 project?
