5 years classroom experience teaching biology. chemistry, and environmental science in both block and traditional format.
I like to take an inquiry approach to all my lessons. My curriculum is largely project-based and the projects solve real-world problems.
In my final weeks in the classroom, a student said to me, "Ms. J, if you don't find the cure for cancer, you leaving teaching will be a waste."
