Edgecomb Eddy hosts student teacher
There is a new face around Edgecomb Eddy. Allison Carbone-Crocker, a fourth-year student at the University of Maine at Farmington, began her student teaching with the fourth- through sixth-grade students on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Miss Crocker, as she wishes to be called, will be mentored by fifth-grade teacher Julie Higgins, and will be with us until mid-May. We extend a hearty Edgecomb Eddy welcome to her.
The Kelp Farmer
Thank you to Mrs. Currier for arranging to have Seth Barker, aka The Kelp Farmer, speak with all our students about the techniques and benefits of aquaculture and farming the sea. Joining in the presentation was Pauline Dion from the Boothbay Sea and Science Center.
The students enjoyed tasting some dried seaweed and learning about the various types of seaweed and the processes for growing them.
