Glory Ann Oljace

Recognizing students’ natural curiosity and love of discovery, Ms. Oljace and Ms. Parker implement “Power of 1” to connect all disciplines with hands-on, real life, multi-sensory experiences to increase student achievement. Students complete a variety of hands-on projects organized around four interdisciplinary themes: describe it, celebrate, weather watch, and structures. Among the activities, students create an illustrated mathematics book, build a multi-pitched instrument, design and fly a kite, construct a proportional, moving puppet, and write and illustrate a fairy tale.
