My Students

A typical day in our classroom begins with a probing question or situation which elicits student's inquiry and creativity. Students will be presented with tools and a bit of guidance to discover answers to their questions. I want my students to be well prepared for the field of real science.

My students are aspiring scientists, physicians, nurses, science professors and teachers who are learning about how science can be applied to any given situation.

My students are well trained in safety procedures and in many of the new techniques they will be required to know once they get into secondary education. Although our lab is well equipped, I would like to continue to offer my students innovative opportunities for applying new technologies to our concepts and explore some of the techniques they may use in their field.

My Project

My student's access to color printing, will allow them to have colored images in their interactive notebook. I stress the importance of color within their notes, for it helps them recall important complicated processes, especially those that are abstract like biochemical pathways. Having available review cards in color, will also help them prepare for exams and have attractive manipulatives to use for exam prep. The lab supplies we ordered will help outfit our lab with some important items, which we need and do not have access to within our school.

My project will make a difference in our student's life, by allowing them to have more hands on activities to solidify their understanding or practical skills in science.

The students will use their interactive notebooks to polish skills for study prep. The access to review cards and review games will help students enjoy the review sessions after and before school.
