    Email! Yaaaaassss!

    Following a research class Wednesday, a teacher asked if any Hum. V students had emailed me yet. My inbox reveals 33 research emails from Hum. V students this past week (can’t wait for the next two weeks!).   Curious how that compares to the rest of the year?  Since September, 137 research queries have arrived in my inbox mostly from SPS students, a few from SPS faculty, 2 from SPS alums and 1 from a student at Andover.  🙂   Looking forward to your end-of-year research questions over the upcoming concluding weeks of school.  I heart your research!  Ms. Sanborn
