Description

Class Experience

My main goal as a teacher is always to launch a lifetime of space exploration and curiosity for my students, and inspire an enthusiasm in them to learn more about what exists beyond Earth. Students will discover that each of the dwarf planets has unique qualities that makes them stand out from the rest, and I want to help motivate an excitement and passion to explore that!
I have 12 years experience as a science teacher, with a focus on space studies. I love outer space, and no matter how old I get, I still enjoy discovering new things about it. Space exploration is one of the most fascinating topics to me, and I have found the enthusiasm with this subject is contagious! 😁
Since this is a one-time class, no required homework will be assigned. I will send a couple fun videos after class, relevant to what we learned, that are sure to delight your student! I will also send a Blooket game that covers what we discussed (no student Blooket account needed). They are always optional, but always encouraged. 😊
No supplies needed.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will be happy to provide a private assessment to the parent if requested.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
N/A
No outside sources will be used in the class meeting. I will send a couple optional, related YouTube videos after class if the student is interested in watching them. Also, solarsystem.nasa.gov is a fantastic website that covers all things space related, if the student ever wants to explore further.
