I have been teaching 7th grade life science for 8 years and 8th grade for 2 years. I have experience working with low-SES students, students with varying ability levels, racially/ethnically diverse students, and ESOL students. I previously taught in Charleston, West Virginia and now teach in Johnson County, Kansas.
The science activities are aligned with the current Next Generation Science Standards. Many of my activities can be utilized by any subject area, at any grade level. Classroom organization items are customizable and could be used in any classroom.
