Classrooms have one thing in common, students with varying levels and skills. In the science classroom students should explore and inquire about the natural world around them. I have found that it is essential to provide each student with a learning experience that boosts academic skills, knowledge, and social interaction. Through the use of collaborative grouping and inquiry learning, students sharpen their critical thinking and problem solving skills required for success in the twenty-first century.
In my classroom I create a framework of high expectations beyond what is required, while simultaneously offering support for students to meet those demands. By creating intriguing lessons with standards that challenge all learners I hope to inspire children to become successful lifetime learners. With each new year of teaching it is evident that thinking outside the box is what grabs and maintains the attention of students in a classroom. Ingenuity is fundamental for any teacher who wishes to challenge students. Through a broad range of experiences creativity is fostered and I have had my share of enlightening experiences. My insatiable curiosity, determination to find solutions and desire to share what I have learned for the betterment of society make me a natural teacher.
