My Students

I teach 7th grade science. I work hard to provide a highly engaging environment. Students have concrete, hands-on experiences to address science concepts. After students have grappled with ideas, I provide readings with informative videos and simulations to support their learning.

My students are diverse in their abilities.

I like to tell students, "No one gets past me in 7th grade science." I can easily say this as we are a rural school district and I AM the 7th grade science department. I enjoy this reality because I get to build relationships with all of the kids that venture through our district, which then means I teach all students with exceptionalities in the same environment as our general population kids. I love this fact as students learn patience, tolerance and collaboration with people who have different talents and abilities than them.

My Project

Students will use the headphones when completing CK12 readings that I have written. The CK12 readings contain written content, videos and simulation. Having individual headsets allows students to listen and be at their own pace without disturbing others.

A student's success in school should not be about what resources parents can provide.

When students do not have access to materials like headphones they are put at a disadvantage. Having a class set allows all students to know if they forget a material or simply cannot afford it, they will still be able to succeed despite their circumstances!
