Big surprise ‘a little surreal’ for Lyons-Decatur science teacher | Articles

While Timm relishes what small-town life offers him and his family, he said he encourages children to broaden their horizons.

“Our school’s gone 1-to1. Every kid (grades) 7 to 12 has a laptop,” he said. “Those kids are connecting to the world, and we can bring the world here through that process.
