“Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps” by Brenna DiCola, ISB Math Teacher

Since graduating from Swarthmore College, Brenna has worked with students in grades K-8 at private schools around Philadelphia, in Lawrence, KS, and in Madrid. She has taught everything from English and Social Studies to Science and Technology, but her passion is Math Education. This past summer, Brenna moved to New York and found a home at ISB, where she currently teaches 6th and 7th Grade Math and serves as Head of the Middle School Math Department. In 2015, Brenna took a five-month hiatus from the classroom to hike the Appalachian Trail, a 2,189.2-mile trek through fourteen states. During ISB's 2020 Pecha Kucha Evening in early March, Brenna shared about her journey and the many lessons she learned along the way in her presentation: “Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps."

Leadership through Science

Earlier this month in Science class, 8th Graders chose to explore and present on a topic of their choice related to chemistry. Topics included freezing ice cream, researching individual chemists who made significant contributions to the field, exploring neutralization, taking a persuasive stance on soda, and more! Throughout these projects, students were able to choose what interested them most and conduct their own research.

Student Action Brought Composting to ISB!

After three months of students consistently separating food waste from other trash, the habit of composting is now firmly established in the ISB Cafeteria.
