JES “Weathers” a Visit

web posted November 9, 2018

110918JESJOHNSTON - On Wednesday, October 24, Johnston Elementary 4th graders were treated to a visit by News 12 NBC 26 meteorologist, Riley Hale.  Mr. Hale, a University of Georgia graduate, received degrees in Geography, General Business, and completed his Atmospheric Science Certificate in order to become a meteorologist. He joined Channel 12 after working two years in Greenville Mississippi as the morning meteorologist for The Delta News.

Hale’s visit and presentation were a follow up to a study of weather in the 4th grade science classes.  He talked about the tools used to measure the weather and how those same tools are also used to predict the weather.  Mr. Hale shared information about severe types of weather and gave the students tips on how to stay safe during extreme conditions.
Betsie Davenport, 4th grade teacher, coordinated the presentation and shared, “It was a great opportunity for our students to ask questions from a professional. They were able to take what they learned in class and have Mr. Hale tie it all together.”  Constance Gantt, her teaching partner, added, “Mr. Hale was great, very knowledgeable. We loved having him at our school. Our kids learned so much from him.”
