“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. If I had influence with the good fairy … I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantments of later years, the sterile preoccupation with things that are artificial, the alienation from the source of our strengths.”
– Rachel Carson
I see our science classroom as a space to strengthen and reawaken our natural sense of wonder. I believe we need to continually be observing, exploring, and discussing the world around us. By doing so, we can better learn about our own strengths, interests and passions and connect in meaningful ways with our fellow classmates and surrounding community and environment. I look forward to learning alongside you!
