Editor’s Note: Hermosa Valley School’s sixth grade journalism class is using the Patch blog to post some of their work under the guidance of teacher Christine Duclos.

At Hermosa Valley School, Mr. Hecker, a teacher of science and physical education, has inspired his students since day one.
Mr. Hecker tells us to be the best we can be by giving us important, and helpful advice.
He teaches us facts in science that are helpful to use in our everyday lives. Mr. Hecker is not only an inspiring man, but he is also open-minded, and open to new ideas.
We decided on Nov. 14 to interview Mr. Hecker. We asked him many questions, but the one that stood out was: "Why did you want to be a science teacher?"
His eyes widened, and with a warm smile he replied, "I am very fascinated with how the universe works!"
