Middle and High School Math and Science Teacher
The Elijah School
I have completed my first year at The Elijah School as the ninth grade Algebra I and Biology teacher. The year was a tremendous success. Having only four students, I could really give my students more individualized attention with their subjects. We had more mobility than I've ever experienced with my students to go on weekly off-campus trips. We often did weekly biology hiking trips into the forest to study plant and animal life. The students utilized an observation journal a camera and video recorder to record our experiences. The students then would put together projects show-casing their learning in the field. This was a very rich experience this year because of the added mobility off-campus to really experience first hand careers in biology field work.
