Pasco HS Teacher Wins Classroom Makeover

Posted: Updated:
PASCO, WA -  We visited Pasco High School on Thursday to surprise this month's classroom makeover winner.  We stopped by Mr. Weisenfeld's freshman science class to present him with a $250 check from Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

Mr. Weisenfeld just started teaching a couple years ago after spending 13 years working for Microsoft.  He says he enjoys bringing science to life for kids, to get them interested in high tech career paths.

"The challenge every day, new kids every year, and then trying to get those under represented groups who aren't at Microsoft to Microsoft, or at least thinking about it like it's a possibility," Weisenfeld said.

Weisenfeld says he plans to use the money to purchase apps for the science department's iPads to help students relate to the different ways that we use chemistry and physics in real life.
