Guest Speaker Introduces TMS Students to Composting

Mrs. Carol Tinsley, a science teacher at Trafford Middle School, invited Ms. Reese from Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling to visit her 7th-grade classes for a presentation on decomposers in an ecosystem and to introduce how decomposers help cycle matter in an ecosystem.  

The class also covered how using worms in vermicomposting can be done at home to help the environment.  Mrs. Tinsley now has a vermicomposting bin on loan in her classroom, which will enable the students to observe the worms at work.
