Ashlen Richards

My name is Ashlen Richards and I am a senior at UT Tyler set to graduate in the fall of 2020, pursuing a degree in interdisciplinary studies to hopefully teach anywhere between pre-kindergarten and third grade. I want to become a teacher so that I can help students build their confidence levels and work towards their goals. As a teacher, I not only want to equip students with the tools they need to succeed, but I also want to provide a safe, positive environment for students to thrive in. Outside of the classroom I love to travel, read, enjoy fine arts, and spend time with friends and family. On a more science related note, I enjoy learning about animals and the environment, and I am always looking for new, exciting ways for students to learn the wonder of science. At the end of my time at the University of Texas at Tyler, I want to be confident in my abilities, especially in the science field, to lead my future students to becoming lifelong learners.

When teaching a science lesson in an elementary classroom, is there more value in integrating technology or doing hands-on lessons, or trying to do a combination of both?
