I am excited about this year and looking forward to having a wonderful school year with my 6th graders. I hope to encourage my students to enjoy learning science. When I was young, I was inspired to study science by my father, who was a successful engineer and professor. My class will provide hands-on, student-centered, and inquiry-based instructions. I want my students to learn a logical way of thinking and investigating, and gain knowledge about the natural world. I believe that children do better in school when parents talk often with teachers and become involved in the school. Please email me or call me any time to support your child. In my personal life, my husband and I love to travel, explore nature, learn about new cultures, people and culinary experiences. I also love music, movies, outdoor sports, animals, and foods. I am looking forward to a successful school year together!
