Former Student Returns to Earth Science Class to Teach Students About Rocks

During Mrs. Williams’ earth science classes on May 7, students had the opportunity to learn from a former student who has an interest in rocks and fossils.

Al Tahan was a student in Mrs. Williams’ class in 2004, and he went on to major in geology at Buffalo State College and also earned a degree in teaching. Although he ultimately joined the family business, Joe Tahan’s Furniture, he still pursues his passion for geology and teaching, and he has been presenting in Mrs. Williams’ earth science classes for the last three years.

During his visit, he taught students more about rocks and fossils and they were able to examine each of the different kinds of rocks he taught them about.
