     Me with the Galapagos Turlte in Ecudor
    Meet Mrs. LeMay
     
     
    Hello and Welcome to my science classroom!! I wanted to take the time to introduce myself to you.
     
    Teaching Style:    
    • I love using brain based research techniques in my classroom. That means I use music, movement, color and drawings in my notes and the kids (hence why you need colored pencils!!!), graphic organizers, pneumonic, tricks, puzzles, anything I can to make CONNECTIONS!! Do not be surprised if you walk past my classroom and you hear us rapping, singing, and clapping out vocabulary terms or cell parts! I love to create raps, poems,  and rhymes to help my students learn the material in science. Sometimes it is crazy! But they get it and remember it too!! Often students I have taught in the past come back wanting the words to the songs to help them in their current classes.
