This branch of science can be tricky to understand and more complicated to apply in real life, but chemistry and biology teacher Kathryn Connolly helps students comprehend the aspects of molecular and biological chemistry.

A few months ago I was in Downtown Fresno for jury duty and found myself looking for somewhere to get some coffee. I noticed this cute little cafe very close to the court and decided to check it out. It was called Kids Café 2019. I looked around and noticed that this was more than just a cafe, so when I got home I set out to learn exactly what Kids Café 2019 was.

During my experience as a teacher, I have found that when working with English as a Second Language (ESL) learners it is important to understand the diversity of native languages spoken at home and the cultural background of each student. This background is an important part of the student’s work ethic and shapes the challenges he or she may face in school.

Even as a life long resident of Reedley, CA and a member of the media, there are things in Reedley that I am not aware of. Earlier this year I was approached by someone about doing an article about Kings Canyon High School (KCHS) and set out to find out exactly what KCHS was because I honestly had no idea. This led me to my interview with Randy Bessey, Ed.D., Program Administrator at KCHS which I am sharing with you today! I am glad I went on this journey to learn more and hope you will go on it with me now–you won’t regret it!
