Ms. Kim is a certified K-6 teacher and has been teaching for over 20 years.  She has taught students in a variety of settings, including public schools, a micro-school, and homeschool environments.  
Students will be experimenting in this class, and may have to do some things outside of class, including collecting data or completing tasks related to their experiments.   
Upon enrollment, students will receive a detailed supply list. Many supplies are easily found around the house, however there are a few that may need to be purchased ahead of time, including: -Small, hand-held microscope, like this one, available for about $18: https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/pocket-microscope-120x-led/ -Prepared microscope slide (optional), available here for about $14: https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/kids-microscope-slide-set/?refSrc=14410&nosto=nosto-page-product1 -Prepared petri dishes, available here for about $13: https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/nutrient-agar-prepared-media-plates-5-pack/ -Bread-making yeast
Students are continuously assessed for understanding during class.  The teacher makes adjustments to the class based on the understandings of the students.  
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is a portion of class in which students try to find physical traits in themselves that are similar to other family members.  The teacher is sensitive to the fact that not all students may physically look like their family members, and will address this as needed in class.
