Director of Science
High quality science curriculum and instruction engages students by presenting them with a phenomenon or problem that needs explanation or solving. The educator creates an environment where students ask questions, openly discuss content with each other, observe using all 5 senses, use scientific tools, apply scientific processes, and generate data driven conclusions. Science students learn best by “doing” and educators support student experiences with concepts, historical context, and integration of current technology. Our students will be prepared to apply their knowledge and skills to make sense of complex situations.
In an effort to provide parents a report card which gives specific information concerning what a child should know, understand and be able to do, the elementary report card is linked to state standards (TEKS). As we collectively and strategically plan to integrate 21st-century learning standards, it is imperative that effective methods be used to measure and report what students are learning. The standards-based report card is a tool to help accomplish these goals.
