Ms. Stallings believes that extra-curricular activities such as Odyssey of the Mind, E-cybermission, Student Council, and Honors Band, to name a few, give students an opportunity to shine while being challenged. She also believes extra-curricular activities help shape a child and give them experiences to learn beyond the classroom. A father writes, "Our daughter, Jamie, showed very little interest in science but now considers it one of her favorite subjects. Ms. Stallings volunteers hundreds of hours from her weekends and time after school to nurture students' find solutions to how natural and manmade objects work."
