I am excited to be teaching Project Lead The Way (PLTW) course Energy and the Environment at John Adams Middle School this year!  This will be my second year at John Adams Middle School teach PLTW. My past teaching experience has been in science in Phoenix, AZ and Adrian, MN.  I have been incoporated in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) for many years into portions of  in my science classes.

I am thrilled about being a part of  team at John Adams Middle School.  This year I will be teaching 6th grade Energy & The Environment.

Project Lead The Way 
PLTW is a “hands-on” engineering-based program that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) all into the same course.

According to Project Lead the Way: these programs, “focuses on showing-not telling-students how engineers use technology to solve everyday problems.”  I have used the descriptions for each class from site to give you more information about each class.

Energy & the Environment (semester class for 6th grade)
Students are challenged to think big and toward the future as they explore sustainable solutions to our energy needs and investigate the impact of energy on our lives and the world. They design and model alternative energy sources and evaluates options for reducing energy consumption.
