My NSTA / Peers / Rhonda Adams

I consider myself to be a unique middle grade science teacher in that I started in business, got a degree in k-8 education and taught for 4 years in elementary. In that time I came to love teaching science and sought to get an endorsement in integrated sciences earning two masters degrees along the way. I believe I have a unique perspective a lot of science teachers don’t have today in that my degree is in teaching and the science knowledge came after. My main goal in teaching the middle grades is to help the students realize that every subject is useful and will help them in life and feel that science is the one subject that can help them come to this realization. Being at a school where students are learning Spanish as well I incorporate as much of their second language abilities that I can. It is my background in a wide variety of careers, that I hope to make science more Real World for my students.
