Welcome to Santan Junior High and, specifically, to 7th grade science! We are going to have a GREAT year in science. There are a lot of fun activities we can do while learning science. Together we can accomplish great things! I know each of you enters 7th grade with a different level of science background. I will work to get us all on the same page quickly. Remember, this is OUR class; please be sure to discuss any concerns you have as we go through the next ten months together.

My Education and Professional Background

Mrs. Ring possesses a:

*Bachelor of Arts (Biology) {Quinnipiac University}
*Master of Arts in Teaching (Secondary Science) {Quinnipiac University}
*Sixth Year Certificate (science specialist) {Southern Connecticut State University}
*Masters in Educational Leadership (K-12 Principal) {Arizona State University} Mrs. Ring taught 7th and 8th grade science in Connecticut for three years prior to moving to Arizona in 1999. She immediately began teaching in the Chandler Unified School District where she has served as a 6th and 7th grade science teacher. Mrs. Ring was thrilled to be selected as one of the teachers to open Santan Junior High School in 2002.

My Educational Philosophy

Mrs. Ring's philosophy of education is that each child, despite individual needs, abilities, and talents can learn! A safe environment in which all students feel included and valued contributes to a learning community in which learning is maximized. Students should grow as learners and as people when in the classroom setting. As a result, Mrs. Ring's lessons are student-centered, inquiry-based, relevant, engaging, and collaborative in nature allowing students to discover content, connections, and relationships they may overlook in a teacher-centered setting. It is important to Mrs. Ring that students develop habits and routines that lead them to being successful learners and citizens.
