"My name is Susan and I am the director of the Laramie Learners program here at the Laramie Public Library. I am currently preparing material to use in a rock and mineral afterschool club for middle schoolers that we will be starting soon as a part of our science learners group. I just came across your page www.sccgemology.org/linkswhile I was looking for some resources to use in my lessons.
I just wanted to take a second and say thank you for helping me out, your page will be a great addition to the material I plan to reference during our afterschool meetings and lab workshops where we will examine different specimens. I am very grateful for all the information and resources you took the time to post.
