Teacher Bio - Patrick Goff, a two-time winner of the INSPIRE award, started the school year with a request to have 17 desktop computers in his classroom so he could teach his classes in a more blended approach. His classes are now nearly paperless as students work online in a closed, collaborative network. Goff has found ways to link topics such as global warming to his students through simple ways they can impact the planet. For next year, he is working in conjunction with the University of Kentucky to teach eighth grade science content through the lens of climate change.
