Mollie Kottek has always enjoyed working with youth. She has spent time as a lifeguard, a camp counselor, volunteering in schools, and substitute teaching. She attended the University of Oregon and earned both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Chemistry. After working as a research scientist, she decided that the classroom was where she belonged. Thus returning to the University of Oregon to attain her K-12 teaching license, she became a teacher. 

 

Stormy Ballenger

Today for Show and Tell, I’ve brought a tiny marvel of nature: a single snowflake. I think we might all learn a lesson from how this utterly unique and exquisite crystal turns into an ordinary, boring molecule of water, just like every other one, when you bring it in the classroom. And now, while the analogy sinks in, I’ll be leaving you drips and going outside.
— Calvin, from Calvin & Hobbes comic
