My name is Scott Johnson and I teach a 4th and 5th grade loop at the Center for Inquiry in Columbia, SC. We are a K-5 magnet school located in Richland Two school district. CFI is a professional development school, partnering with Richland Two and the University of South Carolina in a small-school setting. What makes CFI unique is our focus on "inquiry-based" instruction. Instruction emphasizes hands on, project-based learning, within an integrated curriculum.
