Scientist Ada has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this? Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!

I am in my 7th year of teaching and my second year with first graders. I teach in a low income-high special needs urban school. The only thing I love more than teaching and playing with my students every day is coming home to my wife and 2 children. I can't imagine doing anything other than teaching. I love trying new things in my classroom to make it the best place for students to play, learn, grow, and have fun.
