My name is Susan Darby and I am a middle school science teacher. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology with sixteen years of experience teaching science. My goal, I want to raise the aspiration of my students in the study of all disciplines of science. The best part about teaching science is when I see the excitement on my student's faces, that “Light Bulb Moment” that moment of understanding, they GOT IT! When they gain understanding of the principles of Newton’s Laws of Motion, Properties of Matter, The Cell Theory, and how to conduct a Scientific Investigation, their minds have opened to a deeper understanding.
This year we are very excited to start a new middle school science curriculum called IQWST(pronounce eye-quest), which stands for Investigating and Questioning our World through Science and Technology. The curriculum is based on the very lastest research on how people learn, and how students learn science in particular. Students will be engaging in many more hands-on activities in class, in which they are handling science materials and are experiening phenomena first-hand. Your child's education is of the utmost importance to me, as I know it is to you.
