She said she hopes to provide field experiences for her students that take Samantha Christensen science out of the classroom and into the real world.

CHELSIE PHILLIPS Phillips is .teaching al- gebra, calculus and geome- try. This is her first year of teaching. Phillips is from a small town in North Dakota.
