My Students

I teach 16-18 year-old students with a variety of learning styles in our High School. My students are focusing their time in school on preparing for life after high school; whether that means entering the work force immediately or going to college or they're just trying to figure out what they want to do.

My students are looking forward to being as independent as possible after high school.

Almost all of my students participate in a variety of extra - curriculars or have jobs that they must spend their time after school at.

Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' home, working, and being involved in their community when they finish school. Others are looking to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program

My Project

As a public school teacher, we are constantly trying to emphasize literacy and comprehension in every class, including science. Often times, finding good books and articles is hard to find for science classes, especially ones that can get the students engaged and excited.

"The World is Blue" is going to give my students a look into explorations done by Sylvia Earle, the first female chief scientist at NOAA.

This will give them a chance to connect and apply what we learn in class to our real world marine environments. By giving them a book that is not only rich in content but also a first person recount of many first time discoveries, students will be engaged and enthralled by this book.
