Summer 2019

Fall 2019

Hello NYS Health Science Educators!

Hope you are enjoying summer! I have been busy trying to create an avenue of education, network, and sharing lesson plans for all members.  I am proud to roll out our first “Google Classroom”.

Questions:

How do I gain access to the classroom?

Once you have paid dues, you will receive code.

How will I know when new lessons or professional development opportunities are posted?

You will receive announcements to the email you enter, it is important to use a personal account if possible. There are many districts that have fire walls and you may not receive announcements for new information to your school account.

Can I contribute some of my lesson plans for others to share?

YES, I encourage all to submit lessons and articles so we can grow professionally together. Just submit to me through the following email:

NYSHealthscienceeducator2018@gmail.com

As we think of the start of school approaching, we begin to prepare our minds and lessons for the excitement of the new school year, eager students, fresh bulletin boards, and creative ways of arranging our classrooms. We begin with fresh ideas and refresh our minds with the mission of CTE. 

This month, I offer this quote, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I will remember, Show me and I will learn” – Ben Franklin.

I have always felt this quote was written for CTE as it reminds me of our role as career and technical education instructors. The hands on skills and work based learning experiences shape, mold, and strengthen the content and academic.

I wish each one an enjoyable summer and I will send out another newsletter prior to school year. My hope is to provide avenues of information through these newsletters that will shape, mold, encourage, and challenge you, your lessons, and ultimately your students.

Thank you and looking forward to meeting many of you at the upcoming conferences!

Please feel free to email me with your CTE month activities, ideas, and success stories of your Health Science programs!

Thank you for all you do!

With love, kindness, and gratitude,
