Middle schoolers love variety and meaningful tasks, and that's exactly what I try to give them every day. My style is inquiry-based as much as possible. We take time in class generating questions, wondering "What exists and what happens? How do we know we are correct in our ideas?" I try to make science fun, with demonstrations and investigations, balanced with literacy skills using Cornell-style notes and Interactive Notebooks. Students work in collaborative small groups rather than simply doing worksheets with instructions for a "cookbook" lab. Modern technology can be a powerful teaching aid. I've made over 100 instructional videos available to my classes online in order to "flip" certain aspects of my curriculum. I use "clickers" as a tool for discussion, and an online "Moodle" course website to extend student learning beyond the classroom.

I try to learn most of my lessons by observing birds, ants, and trees. If one knows how to ask, and how to wait, Nature will never fail to speak. I suppose people really want to hear about time inside classroom walls... Stanford University, B.S.
