Science – Grades 6 and 8
I have always thought that a student centered classroom where the students lead the discussion and discovery is the most effective teaching style for science education. I see myself as a facilitator asking questions, working to guide students to comprehend concepts they can build a body of knowledge on.
The Catholic Academy of Stamford allows me the freedom to do this and try out new ideas with only the education of each student in mind. The respect between teachers and students in a Catholic school helps make this possible. I look forward to each day as an exciting day of discovery.
