My students are from a suburban school where the majority are from middle class families. Most of my students plan on attending college and have parents who have raised them with this expectation. My students are still curious by nature due to their age and are excited about the topics we cover in science class. They love to bring their own experiences to the classroom conversations and often times bring objects to share as well. It is not unusual for a student to bring in an x-ray of their broken arm, an interesting rock they picked up somewhere, an insect they caught and want to identify, or questions regarding a current event in the news. I love to foster their interest in science and encourage the exploration of science, not just at school but also at home. I want students to take the concepts we cover in science class and find places in their own life where it connects and where they utilize it. I find science amazing and I want my students to experience the same awe that I feel.
