My Students

Our school is a middle/high school in the urban area of Maryland. We focus on educating our students to become great leaders and citizens. Students are celebrated for exhibiting our school's core values: integrity, scholarship, citizenship, perseverance, and sustainability. My students learn best through real-world applications, hands-on activities, and authentic experiences. I teach students with diverse abilities, interests, and backgrounds. My students are in various grade levels, but they all thrive when they get to "do" science!

For the 2020-2021 school year, I am teaching AP Seminar, Introduction to Scientific Research, and Introduction to Research Methods.

STEM/STEAM hands-on activities, cross-curricular projects, and laboratory investigations help my students to learn and apply concepts.

Having experiences dealing with research in high school will better prepare them for their future college and career choices. AP Seminar gives them an opportunity to explore themes, develop and refine their reading and writing skills, earn college credit, and so much more. I am so excited to be teaching these courses.

My Project

This project offers my students a variety of books. Some books will help to support their writing, critical thinking, and debate skills, such as Everyday Debate & Discussion and The Art of Argument. Some books are books that my students have requested, like The Inheritance Trilogy and Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements. Others meet their need to see themselves in books.

For the love of books, help me add to our classroom library!

I have worked to create a classroom library that is diverse, inclusive, and relevant to my students' interests and needs. As interests and needs change, my classroom library needs to reflect that. By supporting this project, you will be helping my students explore important topics such as social justice, develop their writing, debate, and critical thinking skills, and read books with diverse characters.
