My name is Ja'Terra. I am currently in my final year of college of University of Texas. I look forward to being a teacher. I am very interested in becoming a Literacy Coach for schools later on in the future. I have found that many students need extra guidance with reading and I look forward to being apart of that. I am very undecided with the grade levels I want to teach but open to any for now pertaining to English Language Arts.

5 Lack of teaching Science in our Classrooms...
This article simply discusses how teachers may be the only actual scientist that students may actually know throughout life. Each year students are lacking the knowledge about science due to teachers having the lack of time to teach it. More and more overtime students are walking into science classrooms less prepared more than ever to learn grade-level content. Teachers have lack of time for planning lessons and providing additional help that students need. This trend among our students will have a devastating impact on our world when students lack knowledge about mathematics, engineering, and technology and decide not to work in the job fields in the future. Overall, I believe the article is accurate in many ways about teacher lacking the time to teach science in their classrooms. From what I have observered, many teachers do lack the time to plan lesson geared for science with experiments for students. Teachers are now teaching more towards standardized tests and this eliminates a lot of information that students need to know in science subjects. In some classrooms, science is only taught maybe once or twice a week and more towards the end of the day when activities are more rushed through. This increases the problem of students not knowing the information each year. I do agree that this will later impact the country as whole. The more students lack this knowledge, the less likely students will participate in working in career fields such as engineering, technology, and mathematics due to the lack of knowledge. This could cause a economic problem throughout the world if we don't have engineers, technicians, or mathematicians to carry on legacies.
