Greetings to all 8th Grade Scientists!!!Welcome to My Lab Pages!!!
8th Graders in Room 234have fearlessly entered
Dr. Blaisdell'sLABORATORY FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTSKids or parents may contact me anytime at:
2018-2019 promises to be an exciting year of scientific discovery filled with experiments, nature walks, and tours over and under the planet Earth.IT'S ALMOST TIME!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU ALL!!!
Some of our journey this year will be beautiful ...
Some quite terrifying
The only constant is that the
world of science is never boring to a critical mind;
a mind that CONSTANTLY asks questions!
So we will gather, as a group of curious investigators:
Some of us will be easygoing
and some just in it for the fun
But it will ALWAYS be ELECTRIFYING
Some Stay Safe and Think INSIDE the box
Others are brave enough to think OUSTIDE the box
Don't worry if you don't get it all at once;
Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again!
BUT DON'T DIVIDE BY ZERO!
So as the Pennsylvania Dutch say,
Rufen oft und lange bleiben!
"Call often and stay long!"

Dr B has ALWAYS been an enthusiastic TIGER!
Dr B was born (yes he was actually a baby once. (Not a small baby but a baby)) in Philadelphia, PA at the University of Pennsylvania Hopsital in 19 ...mumble mumble mumble.
After 18 short years he wandered his way northward to New Hamshire where he attend Dartmouth College and majored in Religion. There he continued his Tiger passion:
Ted then decided to go to Medical school and attended Hahnemann Medical school in Philadelphia and then did an internship in surgery at Dartmouth-Mary Hitchcock Medical Center and then a residency in Family Practice at Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster PA.
After practicing Family Medicine for a number of years Dr B decided to upursue graduate education in English with an eye toward studying and teaching Medicine and Literature as interdisciplines.
Dr B went back to Lehigh University, got his Masters in English, and was completing his PhD work when he got a job in Philadelphia teaching Medicine and Literature in Philadelphia.
Soon Dr B and his family moved BACK to New England, and he began to substitute teach in South Hadley. Dr B fell in love with South Hadley and teaching 8th grade science and has been here ever since.
