Is it Clear or Cloudy?

Most people are fascinated or interested in the weather but understand very little about meteorology and the science behind it. They believe old wives’ tales as truth. Because weather is a popular topic, many people believe they are experts. They often believe that one weather occurrence is the norm or rule.

“I loved how you began your presentation by building relationships and connections with the students. Both by talking about some of your interests (like mountain biking) which many of them can relate to, but also being open and honest with them about how your diagnosis impacted your family and your life when you were growing up. I really loved the take away message that you shared with students that it’s important that they keep in mind that others who may look or talk differently from them can usually do all of the same things that they can do, just sometimes in a different way. Stating the challenges without focusing on them and leading students to see the similarities instead is a very powerful way to share your message.“ -Mrs. Tina Blackwell, Elementary Teacher at Lawrence Grassi Middle School, Canmore
