22 years of teaching science at the middle school level
My goals with every lesson are to find a way to connect it to the lives of my students and to have fun! If you are having fun and are energetic, your students will feel the energy and be excited to learn. A lot of my classroom materials are group-oriented. I think learning takes place when students are able to collaborate and discuss their learning.
