Content Area (for this year): 8th grade physical science
Teaching Placement: Berkeley Middle School

I have been interested in teaching for a while, because both of my parents are teachers. It became clear through tutoring opportunities and other teaching opportunities that teaching is something I both enjoyed and was good at, and this lead me to pursue the teaching profession full-time. I want my classroom to be very interactive and engaging, because I want to correct the misconception that many students have of "science is boring." To do this, I envision having many activities with each topic, and using these to illuminate the topic.
