My Students

I teach a highly diverse group of students at an international school that prides itself on celebrating diversity and making everyone feel included. Over half the population are immigrants or first generation Americans. Many come to this country with little. Our large population of African-American kids face similar challenges, many coming from disadvantaged homes. Despite the difficulties they have to overcome, they come to school eager to learn and help their fellow students every day. They share their remarkable stories and come together as a cultural symphony.

I've never met more vibrant, deserving students than those I teach now.

My Project

We're starting Force and Motion in January! Almost every day we'll be rolling marbles down ramps and dropping ping pong balls from a table. But where will we record our data? How can we organize all this information we're discovering? How can we, as a class, come up with answers independently and share them at once?

Science is best learned through creative expression.

Composition notebooks are the foundation for interactive notebooks, where students fold, cut, draw, and tape their notes and graphic organizers in a way that encourages personal pride in their learning. White boards allow students to write answers in a novel way, and allow me to assess the class as a whole with one sweeping look across the room. I want to make the so-called "boring" part of science -- the note-taking, the data-collection, the review -- an engaging process in which students feel invested.
