Socrates said "I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think." If I can inspire students to think about the world around them in a way that allows them to see the wonder and possibility that surrounds them then I feel I have been successful in my goal. My lessons follow a PBL model that supports students as they work to think creatively and outside the box to accomplish collaborative tasks. I use authentic articles and videos so students see relevant and current information from scientists on the topics of study. I put students at the center of their learning and help them develop the skills they will need to be successful, independent learners and thinkers.
