Mrs. Jane Bunn

Mrs. Bunn has been teaching for nine years. She teaches 8th grade Science and Honors Science. She also teaches 8th-grade AVID. Mrs. Bunn believes, "when it comes to teaching science, I see myself as an individual who teaches but is still learning. My role in the classroom is the expert learner, where I am a model for my students to follow but also with the understanding that I am a co-learner. I allow my students to wrestle with problems together which develops into discussions about real world problems and provides an environment where peer-teaching can take place. I believe that learning occurs when students are actively engaged in hands on science and inquiry based projects."
