Although I teach science, I feel that my class should also be a place where students mature.  The transition from elementary to middle school is not always easy.  My classroom provides a structure where students are comfortable to learn and study and enjoy it! 

Where is science headed?  Science is a discipline that can not move forward into the future without understanding and applying its past.  The ideas and discoveries of science’s greatest thinkers would not be if it were not for the prior thoughts and research of those that came before.  Newton would not have his laws of gravity and motion if not for Galileo’s experiments on falling objects in the Tower of Pisa.  Einstein would not have his physics’ theories if not for Newton.  Watson and Crick could not have designed the structure of DNA if not for Rosalind Franklin’s genetic research.  The children in my classroom today are the thinkers of tomorrow.  I teach the past and present of science, and they will create the future.
