Class Experience

For decades, I have enthusiastically taught elementary school-aged children about meteorology, whether as a science teacher at school or in special programs. I developed my expertise of severe weather starting in childhood and replaced any initial uncertainty or fear of mine (for example, of tornadoes) with accurate information and sound safety strategies. As a full-time teacher, with sensitivity for children's feelings, I honed my skill in reassuring any children with fears about the topic with scientific knowledge and understanding. 

I enjoy inspiring and motivating students to learn unfamiliar material in ways that are relevant to their everyday lives and to engage in critical thinking and problem solving. This involves a combination of inquiry, discovery, discussion, and storytelling with an age-appropriate sense of humor. Establishing a low-risk atmosphere and a comfortable rapport, I enjoy connecting with each individual learner, valuing the unique interests, strengths, and eager curiosity the students bring to class.
Occasionally throughout the eight weeks, I will provide printable summary material and possible printable activities. (NOTE: If learners cannot print at home, they instead can gain benefit of printable activities through observation and discussion.) In addition, here are the required and optional materials I anticipate: (Required): • A handful of modeling clay, one color (can substitute crumpled up paper) • White chalk or white crayon, and at least two pieces of blue paper at least 8 1/2" x 11" (can substitute pencil and unlined white paper) • Ruler or straightedge • Colored pencils, crayons, or markers • Notebook (spiral or composition book) to take notes and make drawings; or loose sheets of paper and a folder or binder (Optional): • Small plastic bowl • Thermometer that is safe to immerse in water • Ice
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class includes topics that might be scary to some students and/or evoke memories of uncomfortable past experiences. These topics may include tornadoes, high winds, lightning, flooding, hurricane storm surges, some mention of storm damage, and whiteout conditions during blizzards. My emphasis for all learners will be on the science of weather itself and not casualty aspects. In addition, the focus will be on how to stay safe and the reassurance that their grownups will keep them safe. It is a goal of mine for increased learning and understanding of severe weather to actually decrease or eliminate fears rather than intensify them.
