Mr. C showing the power of Earthquakes

I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference in the world. It is my ultimate goal to get students to enjoy Math and Science because those are the growing fields for job opportunities.  I try to accomplish this by using humor, making it relevant to a teenagers life, and by making science hands-on.  I truly care about each student and their goals and dreams and look forward to seeing how successful they will be.  I enjoy making students discover answers to difficult questions through inquiry and thought.  I also love to see the creativity that students have to offer the world.  What is even more important to me than content and curriculum is life lessons and preparation for their High School years.  I could go on and on about how much I love my job and profession and it shows when I am teaching or with students.
