Hi! I'm Shirley Gunter, 2nd grade teacher at Kila School, a small K-8 school southwest of Kalispell.

I have taught at the school for eight years and have used several approaches to teach my students about weather.

It is a common denominator for us as it affects all of our daily lives. Becoming Weather Watchers presents a unique and authentic learning experience for the kids.

My students are very enthusiastically observing, comparing, and writing about the weather using new vocabulary.
