A Butterfly’s Life….Part II at TAS

We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to watch the life cycle of the beautiful Monarch right in The Accelerated School Garden.  We observed many more caterpillars but upon further investigation we spotted many chrysalis!  We learned about this stage of a butterfly’s life and how their metamorphosis occurs.  We’re hoping to catch a glimpse of some Monarchs soon!

Originally from Arizona, I was brought out to beautiful Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California where I will be graduating come December with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.  I grew up with a love of gardening from spending summers on my papou’s farm in Greece to helping my parents tend to our personal garden in Arizona.  My passion for the environment and gardening go hand-in-hand and I can’t wait to incorporate lessons from my studies to the students I am teaching at Alta Loma!
