My teaching career has been at Westford School. During that time, my wife and I raised three daughters (two of whom are teachers themselves now.) I also own Two Black Sheep Farm in South Hero growing/marketing organic vegetables. Other passions include space sciences, rocket and model making, carpentry and anything British or Scottish.
Fifth and Sixth Grade Science and Math
Fifth and sixth grades are an exciting time for students. The two years in the Hogwarts Team represents a passage from elementary to middle school. As the science and math teacher, I try to bring a passion for topics to students using constructivist theory, process skills use, and following the scientific method. This is accomplished using a project-based model with Next-Gen Science Standards as our template of study. Students collaborate in teams working on standards acquisition through project work.
In maths, students grapple with study based on inquiry, group discussion, and week-long practice on concepts. I regard myself as a constant learner too, and as we discover and share ideas, our skills base and sophistication progresses through Bridges Math 5 and Connected Math 6 programmes.
