Irene King Students Get Science Lesson from Valley View Superintendent

James Mitchem returned to the classroom Wednesday at Irene King Elementary School.

Editor's note: The following is a press release from Valley View School District 365U. 

Valley View School District 365U Superintendent Dr. James Mitchem returned to classroom teaching for the first time in quite a while Wednesday. 

Dr. Mitchem, who taught middle school and high school students more than a decade ago, got a taste of elementary school teaching courtesy of Candice Greenwood and her 4th and 5thgrade students.

The lesson plan called for a little bit of recess, with some tag and some general fun on the new playground equipment at King, followed by a lesson on lungs including a hands-on lung capacity experiment.

Mrs. Greenwood was the beneficiary of Dr. Mitchem’s hour-long visit courtesy of a drawing in August at Teacher Institute Day.
