Welcome to Sherriff's Homepage
My teaching philosophy is summed up by an old quote that rings true for today: "If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, then we rob them of tomorrow" by John Dewey in 1944. To me this quote sums up the new Next Generation Science Standards and it means I need to continue to revise and consider how I teach everyday.
I look forward to sharing my love of science and teaching my students about how the world works through interactive, mind-engaging science activities.
Homework: The daily agenda including classwork/homework is posted on my board for the day. I give students time to write our daily agenda including due dates down in their planner. In order to help encourage my students to be responsible, ask questions, and develop organization skills, I do not post my homework on my website. Students receive "stamp points" each week if they have filled out their agenda.
I look forward to working with your child this year and to provide them opportunities to get the most out of their science experience which is a mix of fun and work.Sincerely, Robert SherriffEmail is the best way to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org note two r's and two f's
