Over Christmas Break, one of the Monroe science rooms was remodeled. Old tables and flooring were removed to make way for new. The project was completed on schedule and we were able to begin the semester in the newly remodeled room.
Mr. Joe DiTommaso spends most of his day in this classroom. The room had been a challenge because many students had to sit with their backs to him. Here’s what he has to say:
“Science is a function of cooperation and discipline. Now, this room maximizes both. The only downside I can see is now other teachers may be interested in using my room.”
The remodel added an additional demonstration table and moved non-functional plumbing and electrical into the floor. The tables can be rearranged depending on teacher preference and the type of class.
A huge thank you to the Bill Stroecker Foundation and HIPOW Friday Night Fund-an-Item donors for making this transformation possible.
