What do I teach?
By coaching students through a process of experiential discovery, I help my middle schoolers gain a solid foundation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) principles. I hope I am nurturing future scientists, but I also believe that no matter what path students choose in life, they must develop creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills. In order to foster this development, I provide project-based learning experiences that require both logic and imagination. By working together with others, students experience positive interdependence and shared accountability. My students also gain practice effectively and ethically communicating through a variety of media.
