Heading Back To School In Tea

Tea, SD

John Nolte, a science teacher at Tea Area High School, is practicing a elephant toothpaste experiment he will show his students on the first day of class.

Nolte, like many teachers here, is ready for the school year to begin.

"My syllabus is all ready to go. I got all my plans ready so that we're all prepared to go through the whole year," Nolte said.

Nearly everything is set in place for the 2014-15 school year. But this year there will be something a little different in every high school class. Each student will have a Chromebook. He says this will be a benefit to his students.

"I think a lot of kids are used to all the social media uses of the internet and I think that it will be good for them to start to learn how to use that in a way to help them educate themselves," Nolte said.

As for getting prepared for a good year, Nolte says students should be ready to start a jam packed year.

"They might need to be ready to hit the ground running a little bit, but I think it's just a lot of fun. Out staff is really excited this year to have our kids and I think they are going to have a really fun year," Nolte said.
