speakerWhat People Are Saying

Teaching science allows for numerous opportunities to engage students with hands-on experiences. I believe that everything students do in class should be purposeful, yet engaging. Incorporating more laboratory activities into my teaching will engage all students and allow them to use discovery learning, which helps develop critical thinking skills that can be used in other classes and in everyday life. -- Deysha Whatley

Ms. Whatley has shown a dedication to her coursework and to becoming an exceptional classroom teacher. Her classroom demeanor is reflective.
