My name is Kyle Worrell. I created Learn to Connect to focus on middle level skills building. I have taught 7th grade science for 20 years. During that time I served as the middle school science leader, designed and transitioned our middle school science curriculum from a traditional 6th-Bio., 7th-Earth, and 8th-Chem. format to an integrated spiraled curriculum and also worked as a 6th to 8th grade science gifted mentor.
My teaching style is hands on and engaging with links to the real world. Kids need to understand the purpose for what they are learning. I am a constructivist allowing students to build knowledge and integrate it into what they already know. As teachers it is our responsibility to train the problem solvers of the future.

In 2012 I started a side educational business called Learn to Connect, LLC (www.Learn-to-Connect.com). Learn to Connect offers study skills programs during the school year and STEM science programs in summer camp formats. I am posting many of the activities that we use in our Learn to Connect Programs.
