"Mr. Mike took the 6th graders in Edgemont on a "journey" through Egypt. Mr. Mike was incredibly engaging and energetic and had everyone's attention from the minute he started speaking. Since our 6th graders had just studied Egypt, there was an enormous amount of interaction and participation. Mr. Mike's presentation of Egypt reinforced the student's textbook studies with real life experiences. I have never seen students so engaged! Students crowded around Mr. Mike at the end of his presentation to speak with him and ask questions. Students really enjoyed the smaller workshops after the assembly which allowed them to examine and learn about the many artifacts he brought from his travels. Both the teachers and students loved Mr. Mike. The social studies teacher said "This is something that the kids will always remember. We will definitely be bringing him back to our school next year."
