Experiment

We learned about Mr. Croft from a nomination that we received from one of his students. Brenna writes, “Mr. Croft is an awesome science teacher… he does fun experiments and really cares about his students getting into science. He doesn’t have us just read out of textbooks. Instead, he actually does cool experiments to show us how things work. He also makes sure we know about how to stay healthy and what things can affect our health.”
