From Learning to Research Summer Institute was a great opportunity for me.  It helped me collaborate with teachers I would never get the opportunity to connect with on a regular basis.  It allowed me to see that I have the same experiences as many other teachers.  In addition, it reminded me how special you have to be in order to teach.  Many of my fellow collegues struggle with the constraints of the teaching world but because they care for their students, they make it work.  You definitely have to have a calling to do what we do and I met some really great...

The GLOBE Institute has provided me with important, practical tools. I plan to make them available to my students so they can probe our local environment. It also has provided me with a wealth of ideas for project expansion. I will actively be expanding my professional network to include local scientists in order to correlate our data to theirs. Learning through actual research, along with collaborating with local scientists will enable my students to truly appreciate how human activity does affects our climate.
