DSC00856 On Friday December 4th Dr. Susan Garfinkel talked to the fifth graders about her career. She shared how she was inspired to become a scientist in 7th grade when she learned about cells. After many years of working in a laboratory, Dr. Garfinkel now works for the Office of Research Integrity.

Dear Dr. Garfinkel,

Thank you for giving up your time to inform us about O.R.I. I had no idea this organization existed. I thought this was a fascinating presentation. I didn’t know scientists lied and cheated. What is the organization’s URL? I want to learn more.

Sincerely, K.

Dear Dr. Garfinkel,

Thank you for that presentation. It was great! Being a scientist sounds fun. It could be one of my choices. I never got bored, not even once. You taught me a lot about scientists.

Sincerely, A.

Dear Dr. Garfinkel,

Thank you for telling us about science. Cells are very interesting to me. The presentation kept me hooked on cells. I consider being in the business of cells. Time went by like it was struck by a baseball bat. I learned a lot from you.

Sincerely, B.

Dear Dr. Susan Garfinkel,

I really loved it when you were explaining about cells. I learned so much I might even tell my mom and dad what I learned. Also, thank you for answering all of our questions. You were fun and really nice. You know I might want to be what you are because it sounds really fun. Thank you, Dr. Garfinkel.

Sincerely, S.
