Making Learning Meaningful

Meet Gabrielle Émilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil, marquise du Châtelet! She’s a French mathematician and physicist from the Enlightenment period, and now a popular guest speaker among our students.

Hess Academy teachers have a special knack for making learning an unforgettable experience. Our Science teacher, Sherry Morton, is no exception. She integrated drama, history, feminism, and of course Science when she brought this 18th century figure to life, resulting in an engaging science lesson our students continue to talk about! C’est magnifique, non?
