TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a back ground in science that I am very proud of and have worked hard for. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education with a Biology Major and Reading Minor. I attended Central Michigan Universities Biological Station on Beaver Island in northern Lake Michigan for three of my classes. There I learned the importance of hands on learning and investigations. A dream of mine was to work at the Philadelphia Zoo. I spent a summer teaching their middle school camp and caring for animals. When I look back at my education I would say I have a broad background in education as well as in wildlife biology. While at Airport Community Schools I helped organize the Science Fair and also have judged the Monroe County Science Fair. While on the Curriculum Committee I learned much about the challenges of picking a textbook that matches the science curriculum. After 2 years of teaching fifth grade I took on the title of Elementary Science Lab Teacher. It was the first year of the program. I greatly enjoyed the challenges of starting the program from scratch. I learned so much about all the different grade levels. I taught kindergarten through fifth grade investigations. I became a leader in science investigation journals created by our intermediate school district. I made myself available to other teachers for questions and support on journals as well as the curriculum. I enjoyed seeing the enthusiasm in the students grow for investigating the world around them. I also had the opportunity to help train teachers in writing investigation journals to be used in the outdoor setting at a three-day workshop. During this time I was also working on my masters degree in science at the middle level at Lawrence Technological University. I took 9 credits in science education before transferring to Eastern Michigan University to get a Masters in Middle Level Education with a Science Emphasis. I have completed 20 credits toward my masters before moving to Connecticut. The master’s classes have broadened my knowledge of students and assessing their individual needs as well as keeping me up to date on knew technologies and teaching strategies. I went back into the classroom and taught third grade. I loved teaching third grade. I have spent the last years as a stay-home mom ,but still teach science on the side. I have worked with home-school families, performed science shows and family science nights, as well as teach science lessons in my kids classes. I currently help organize the science fair at my kids school. I continue to take workshops and maintain my teaching certificate.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am very hands-on and like group work as well as individual. I believe science education should be a mix of structured investigations as well as time to just explore. I believe teaching is about creating memorable moments. I try to integrate reading strategies into science to better help students understand the material. I like to make sure topics cover the 6 science process skills. I try to never underestimate the ability of a child. Give them the right tools and time to explore and they will discover the world around them. Kids love science and it should be embraced in the early elementary years.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors in Education from Central Michigan University Biology major Reading minor 20 + master level credits in middle level and science education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

All my investigations are tested and retested to make sure the steps are correct. I take careful time to make sure that I give the best measurements and instructions in my journals. I try to look for any errors that could occur and include tips for when you teach the lessons. Any and all feedback is helpful. I try to make my journals clean and concise. They may look simple, but the students will be able to follow them and the science will be the star of the show.
