Welcome to Science

  • Hello Mays Families, 

    My name is Rose Gerdes, and I am excited to work with all of your young scientists this year. I have a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Minnesota State University Mankato. While earning my degree I specialized in Science Technology Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.), and earned a S.T.E.M Certificate. 

    Science at Benjamin E. Mays is hands and minds on! Students learn through inquiry, experimenting, and engaging in engineering challenges. My mission is to inspire students to see themselves as scientists, and to see science and engineering as tools to change the world. I believe in an open door policy, families are always welcome in my room to see our young scientists at work. If you were to visit my classroom you would see students experimenting with life science, earth science, physical science, and engineering. 

    I am looking forward to learning and growing along with your young scientists this year. 


    -Ms.  Gerdes
