Hi there! My name is Tammy Jo, and I am a senior at. OSU that is ready to graduate in May of 2017 so that I can teach 4th or 5th grade. I love riding horses, playing with my dogs, spending time with my son Tanner who is 18 and attending OSU in Stillwater. I love to learn about anything and I hope to inspire a love for learning with my students.

5 Safety first!
This article is such a fantastic resource for me - I can post the incidents and responses page in my lab classroom and know that it is there for me and any sub who might have to cover for me. Although we all strive to make things as safe as possible for our students, we know accidents can happen in a split second - this makes me feel a bit safer, just knowing it's handy and posted where everyone can see it. Thank you so much for writing such a clear, and easy to follow, set of instructions for incidents that can happen.

5 Motivational!
I loved this article!! This breaks it down into easy, manageable strategies for getting students excited about science - I love the idea of sending them out to explore and investigate on their own, and modeling for them how to do it. Any time we can give them explicit instructions and then they can go further with it in their own investigations is a win win. I can see my students getting super excited to discover natural phenomenon as well, so thank you for such a motivational article!

5 Excellent Ideas!
I found this article to be so inspiring! I can see my students getting excited about being "authors" and having their writing "matter" and possibly be published as a collection at the end of the year. I know as a preservice teacher that there are many ideas out there, but this is one I will definitely incorporate into my plan.
