    Celebratory Best Practice

    Every student needs to feel empowered. It is my goal to have each of my students feel important, appreciated and confident that he or she can be successful. A positive attitude and self-confidence can open doors to a better future.



     
    Instructional Best Practice

    As part of a science curriculum, labs are very important. They allow students to engage in a hands-on approach to learning. It puts the concept at a concrete level which makes it more understandable for many students. At the end of each lab, students make inferences related to why certain things occurred. This allows for a different way of thinking. It requires the use of prior knowledge and critical thinking to develop original ideas.
