Hello Fletcher Maynard Academy friends and family!

eIncMy name is Jen Hagen. I work for “e” inc. - the environmental learning and action center based in Boston, and I am excited to be joining the Fletcher-Maynard Academy this year as a Green Consultant.  For 3 years, “e” inc. has worked in Boston Public Schools to provide a STEM residency program focused on science education and promoting student-led action activities to help make their schools more sustainable; that is to say, environmentally friendly places.

The program includes an Energy Review lesson and action projects that will help Fletcher save electricity. I will also be providing support to students and staff that will deepen their excitement in saving energy by adding new sustainability projects and educational materials.

Some of my goals for the year are to start a student Green Team, provide regular newsletter updates, organize intra-school competitions around saving energy, and working with the Fletcher Maynard Parent Council to keep parents informed and perhaps get some of you involved!  I am excited about this new school year and the opportunity to work with your students. By working together, we can all become Planet Protectors!
