I'm an Education student at Florida International University. I love children and Dogs! I have a degree in Chemistry from Barry University. My dream is to teach and inspire children to love science as much as I do. I am a firm believer that if you love your job you don't work a day in your life! I am not a teacher yet but I have had the opportunity to teach math and science to middle schoolers and all I can say is that I loved it! I am looking forward to learning more for me to become not only a teacher but an inspirational educator!

Garden? Yes! The school I did my field hours at had just started building one, and it's becoming the new science project for middle school and elementary! They are all involved in planting vegetables and flowers, not to mention that they are recording observations during the process. I think it's a excellent idea to engage children on this. It promotes environmental awareness as well as inquiry le...

I totally agree! children need to explore some more! The school I did my hours this semester did not have many natural areas outside but they are building a garden which gave me lots of new ideas to engage children in science activities related to the garden! I believe that having some time outside of the classroom will spark their interest; especially in science!

5 Smart Idea!
I liked the fact that you based your collection on your FA! its a great idea especially because it narrows down all the articles in the library to your specific FA subject and concept. I will do rearrange my collection now thanks to your idea. AWESOME!

5 Good Collection!
I decided to do my FA concept on animal habitats and this collection was very helpful! the articles included are excatly what I needed to complete my lesson plan. It even includes a sci pack which is very helpful to complete in order to learn more about the subject before teaching it to the children. Great Job!

5 I wish I saw this collection before I did my FA!
This collection is the complement of the SciPack. It was difficult for me to review all the articles that appeared when I researched "interdependence of life."This collection has everything I needed to reinforce the concept I needed to teach the students for my Field Assignment! Thank you!
