My classroom environment is bright, colorful, and provides opportunities for cooperative learning and student interaction. Much of my day is devoted to teaching science, which is my passion. My classroom functions as a lab, in which I incorporate demonstrations, as well as lab and STEM activities for the students. I try my best to instill a love for inquiry and critical thinking by using hands-on activities in which all students can learn and thrive.
The beginning of our day starts with Bible. We use a curriculum manual, Route 66, in which the students survey the Bible from the beginning, in Genesis, and move through the Old Testament. This gives the student a better understanding of how the different books of the Bible fit together to present a cohesive picture of creation, the fall of man, and God’s redemptive plan of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
During language arts, we study spelling, grammar, literature, and writing. We complete three novels during the school year, and work toward writing effective five-paragraph essays.
In middle school, we explore life, physical, and earth sciences with an emphasis on the scientific method, which includes a science project and participation in our annual science fair.
