In Westside Today: Local Brentwood Science Teacher Does Good

 

Thank you to  Amy Sommer for her article in Westside Today!

I will be on NATIONAL TELEVISION on Saturday September 29 on KTLA’s Career Day.

The article begins:

On Saturday, September 29, 2012 KTLA’s “Career Day” will invite viewers in to science teacher Lisa Niver Rajna’s classroom and see first hand how she inspires her Kindergarten through sixth grade students by integrating science concepts in an engaging way that connects with our community.

Niver Rajna’s fourth grade students had a Question and Answer session with the director of “Trouble in Paradise” a film that documents how the inhabitants of this Polynesian island nation are dealing with the rising sea waters which will force them to abandon their homes in the near future. Several students were so inspired to help they had a weekend bake sale to raise money to help the Tuvaluans relocate.
