Ms. Julie Schwarting

I joined the Free State family in 2011 when the freshmen moved to the high school.  Currently I teach freshmen Biology, Environmental Science and AP Environmental Science. I sponsor Hacky Sack club, Free State Environmental Club and co-sponsor Ascent, a new organization devoted to encouraging students from underrepresented groups to consider STEM careers.  Over the past five years I've collaborated with KU researchers to create a Free State Prairie Restoration experiment on campus that has created many opportunities for Free State students to engage in authentic research alongside KU professors and students.  A current personal goal includes connecting students with the resources in their community, implementing authentic Project Based Learning, and empowering students to understand and utilize scientific evidence to make positive changes in their world.  Please contact me through email or phone message.
