7th grade math and science educator at a military school in Hawai'i! I am looking into using NGSS skills and phenomena to connect my students more to have a sense of place. I teach at a military school, so my students struggle with feeling as though they can call Hawai'i home (even if it's only for 2 years or so). It is very important for us as math and science educators to refine our instruction to best fit the needs of our students. I am hoping to use a lot of NSTA resources to make my curriculum accessible to students of all different ages and backgrounds.
