All students should feel safe in my classroom - physically safe when performing science investigatinos, and emotionally safe enough to be willing to try new things and make mistakes!
Attitude changes everything!
I believe that it does not matter how "smart" a student is or is not. Successful people achieve their success by working hard, not by being smart.
Students will have science homework Monday - Thursday EVERY week, unless otherwise notified. This homework will usually deal with vocabulary words for the week, and should only take 10-15 minutes at most.
