Getting To Know Me
I am currently a Physical Science Middle School teacher in Richmond, VA, and an Integrated Curriculum in Math and Science student at American College of Education. My main goal is to motivate my students about learning, enjoining science, and maybe pursuing a career in a STEM field by providing them engaging and fun experiences in the classroom. I have always been passionate for Science and Education, and this is the beginning of my attempt to share my knowledge, ideas, and views about teaching STEM.
American College of Education
I had been a middle and high school Science and Math teacher for about 4 years, when I decided to begin my Masters on Integrated Curriculum in Math and Science. I have always been searching for innovative ways to get my students engaged in the science classroom, and to connect their new knowledge with the real-world. As I worked through my master courses, I began noticing how my STEM literacy was improving, and thinking of ways to help my students, and peers improve theirs as well. The Unknown Bones activity is the first Integrated module I set to develop, in order to provide my students with a new classroom experience, which was hands-on, interactive, and inspiring. I present Unknown Bones as my original contribution, with the aims to inspire myself, and other teachers to continue participating, and sharing educative experiences, and ideas that could positively contribute to any student’s STEM education.
