A few days ago four Birches teachers presented an exciting and enthusiastically received presentation at a conference organized by AISNE—Association of Independent Schools in New England. The conference was called “Dusty Topics—Fresh Approaches,” and our teachers put together a presentation that was indeed fresh and innovative. Entitled “STEAMS Case Study of the Oceans: A New Collaborative Approach for Kindergarten to 3rd Grade Classrooms,” this presentation revealed the seamless interweaving of Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Mathematics/Spanish that occurred during the remarkable Oceans Unit of academic year 2013-14.

Congratulations, Katherine, Katherine, Kate, and Jenny!
