The whole 5th grade had a conference with Mrs.Chinnis’s brother! His name is David Green and he is an electrical and industrial technician at Savannah Sugar Refinery in Georgia. He has to drive about 1 hour and fifteen minutes, he lives in South Carolina but works in Savannah Georgia. In class a couple of weeks ago we wrote down questions and our teachers decided with questions were the best. Whoever was chosen would ask David Green their questions and he would answer them. They asked him questions about his college classes, his work schedule and so much more.

There were so many more questions that he answered

He answered so many questions about his job. He talked about how he does his job and his college life. He informed us of so many facts about sugar. He talked about how they make brown sugar out of regular sugar by just using molasses and syrup. He told us that he had only been there for a year. He knows so much for just being there for a year.
