I believe every child is a "one of a kind" human being on this big earth we live on and share, each who is made to be amazing. I believe that each student has the potential to do great things if they are willing to put the time and effort into it if given the opportunity. I believe that no two students (kids) are alike and they each have their very own unique strengths to achieve greatness and weaknesses to improve. After all...each of my students is the future of my community (both local and global).
My goal as a teacher is to...
1) ...help my students see that potential they have within themselves to achieve greatness,
2) ...support and challenge my students to better themselves by giving them the chance to reach their personal greatness in some way each and every day,
3) ...help my student see when they are not reaching that potential, to correct them when needed, offer guidance to improve and to continue to believe in their potential to achieve.
My mission as a science teacher is to...
1) ...get my students to seek understanding of the unknown through a scientific lens, allowing them to look at the world around them with a sense of understanding.
2) ...offer my students practice using the science skills needed to seek out an understanding the "why" of how the world around them works.
3) ...help my students understand the various interactions that occur in the natural world and see how may of these interactions are interconnected.
4) ...understand the human impact on the natural world we live in in both benefit and consequence.
5) ...assist my student in building their "case for understanding" of the science content we are studying this year.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, a renown astrophysicist, is one of todays most vocal champion for science literacy: In this video reminds us as adults how we can help children take steps toward being science literate. "Want Scientifically Literate Children? Get Out of Their Way."
Adam Savage, from the show "Mythbusters", walks through two spectacular examples of profound scientific discoveries that came from simple, creative methods anyone could have followed -- Eratosthenes' calculation of the Earth's circumference around 200 BC and Hippolyte Fizeau's measurement of the speed of light in 1849.
