Several years ago I was tired of testing and paperwork. I wanted to bring the joy of learning back into my classroom. It was then that I started to make themed outfits to wear at the beginning of each new unit. My students quickly nicknamed me the "Real Ms. Frizzle."
I believe that all students can love science regardless of how much they dislike it when they enter my classroom in August. In my classroom students are welcome to ask science related questions and I find the time to answer them. "We don't have time for that" is NEVER an option for me. I have worked hard to provide students with technology enhanced learning that is engaging and fun.
