We've each been middle school science teachers in a public school setting for over 20 years.
Engagement is the number one priority, so our classrooms are light-hearted, welcoming, and foster a safe atmosphere of exploration. Relationship-building is as important as curriculum standards. Management is firm but fair with a big dose of humor. Student choice is offered regularly and assessments are differentiated. We follow NGSS standards closely but aren't afraid to take an adventurous detour!
