"Knowledge is power"

Science is my passion, when students draw connections between content and career applications, their learning is so much more impactful. My interest was piqued in a first grade science course. It was the only subject where asking questions was encouraged, and not challenged. In high school my curiosity deepened and led me to pursue a degree in Biology education.

After graduating from Florida Atlantic University with my Bachelor of Science in Biology education, I became a middle school science teacher. Instead of teaching towards the State exam, I focused on teaching towards the standards. This enabled my students to see the relevance in their learning, through collaboration, creation and problem based learning with solar cars/solar ovens. Curiosity and the intrigue of learning prompted me to go down the "rabbit-hole" of STEM at the end of the tunnel, Robotics and a CS certification. The focus was on VEX,physical computing with Microbit, Arduino, sensors, JIMU and Piper computers, (Raspberry Pi).

Students dived in with Scratch from MIT, creating their own stories and interactive games .t
They learned that computer science encapsulates so many industries from manufacturing to medical. The exploration of these content areas empowered them to become agents of change in society. The 8.5 year experiences gained in middle school catapulted me to High school as the Magnet and Vocational coordinator. Content connections are cultivated when collaboration and career application is mandated. These lines of discovery are interwoven into the fabric of the courses, because students need to see themselves as engineers, scientists , entrepreneurs and professionals today, to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.
