    My Classroom Mission


    The mission of the WHE Science Enrichment class is to encourage a joyful curiosity for STEM using hands-on collaborative experiments and activities that will get kids asking for more! We will work to become true scientists by learning and using the Scientific Method to answer our own questions!

      So, how will we do this? While having a blank slate as to how our school was going to meet the mission I used some basic criteria:
    1)   It has to be FUN!!!!
    2)   It has to be hands on! No reading and writing in this room. Okay,        well maybe some writing. 
    3)   These activities have to be completed within a 50 minute window        from setup to clean up. 
    4)   While I work in the science lab, the class will focus not only on
          science but Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) 
          as well. 
     So, now the kids and I are about to have some fun! 
    About Me
       A 3rd Grade teacher here at WHE for 9 years, it was time to make a change and become the Science Enrichment teacher. As an empty nester, WHE Science offered a challenge I was looking for at this time in my life.
    Over the last year and a half, I have become even more excited and rejuvenated to grow our kids in this endeavor! I have many new ideas and adventures already planned for the 2018-19 school year!
