Christin Amos teaches Fourth Grade at Whitehaven Elementary STEM School. A five-year teaching veteran, this is her first year with SCS and Whitehaven Elementary. Amos meets with her students weekly via Google Classroom. She keeps them learning and having fun with STEM experiments and virtual field trips.
