Welcome!My philosophy is to provide my students access to information rather than acting as the primary source of all information.
For students to construct knowledge, they need opportunities to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. I provide a self-learning environment that empowers students and motivates them to look for answers.
As a science teacher, my goal is to provide students access to as many hands-on activities as possible that reinforce the lesson being studied and create an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge to occur.
I believe it is important to provide activities and use different teaching techniques to allow students with different learning styles the best opportunity to learn. Using technology and providing stimulating activities I try to accommodate different learning styles in every lesson.
I expect my students to take responsibility for their own learning. Students need to participate in class, complete assignments on time, study for tests and come to tutoring before or after school when they need help.
