Punnett Squares and Tanzania

Okay, so I know you are thinking two things…1. What the heck is a punnett square and 2. What do they have to do with Tanzania.

Glad you asked!  To answer your first question, here is the definition of a Punnett Square:

punnett square
  1. The Punnett square is a diagram that is used to predict an outcome of a particular cross or breeding experiment. It is named after Reginald C. Punnett, who devised the approach, and is used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring’s having a particular genotype. …

To answer your second question, let me tell you something about me that you may not know.  I am not only a photographer for seniors, weddings and families, but I am also a Special Services Assistant Teacher at a local high school.  I support six Biology 1 classes, an English 10 class and I have a resource (study hall) class.  I have a caseload of approx. 60 kids that I support in their regular general education classes.  It is awesome and I love it!

One of the Biology teachers I support (his name is Kraig AKA Mr. Kitts to the kids) is currently raising money to go to Tanzania (a country on the continent of Africa) this summer to teach Science.  I am so impressed by this difficult decision he has made to leave his lovely wife and fly (which he is not fond of) to go to another country and impart some of his wisdom (he’s got lots…he has a masters degree) to kids that would be unable to learn about this without the help of these amazing volunteer teachers.

So what does this have to do with you?  Well, Kraig is selling these super sweet shirts to raise the $4,000 he needs to take the trip to Tanzania.  Even if you can’t purchase a shirt, please consider making a donation, sharing this blog post on Facebook, sending an email blast, telling all your friends to visit his website, send a smoke signal, whatever you feel led to do.  I know together we can get Kraig to Tanzania.

Thank you so much for helping!  Oh, to answer your “What do punnett squares have to do with Tanzania?” question…nothing, but it got you interested in reading this blog post, right? 🙂

Hugs and Smiles,

April ❤
