Tinley Park High teacher, Mr. Mark Reiss, wanted his Senior Plant Science students to get a real understanding about the topics in their curriculum. To give the students a hands-on opportunity, he brought them on a field trip to Ted’s Greenhouse in Tinley Park. The students were extremely attentive as they learned about a variety of plant life from Ted Biernacki and his son, Dan Biernacki. They had a great time attempting to identify different herbs in the greenhouse and seeing the different plants up close. The class returned to school eager to apply the concepts they learned and begin growing their own plants.
