Course Listing - by Instructor
|Diane ALLEN||My name is Diane Allen. I am currently a STEM Teacher at Attwood New Tech Magnet School in Lansing. This is a new position for me although not a great stretch considering some of my background and the way I have taught over the past (gasp) 29 years. The last ten years or so I have been a 4th grade classroom teacher and am rather well known for all the science projects that we did in my classroom especially the super "gross" stuff like dissecting hearts near Valentine's Day. At LCC I am looking forward to working with youth that are interested enough in learning about science that they attend classes on Saturdays and in the summer! I really love teaching and like the idea of trying new venues to reach kids.|
