Why Science


Mrs. Gilhooley went to college to study biology. While studying,  she had to do a service project working in center-city, Philadelphia, and it became the favorite part of her week. She changed her major to education to become a science teacher. Mrs. Gilhooley loves teaching science because science is constantly changing, and it’s happening everywhere. 

Mrs. Scott originally went to college to study biology, and then after college, she worked at a nature center. While there, she worked with students of all ages, and she realized how much she liked it. She then went back to school to get her teaching certification, and teaching science is what she is passionate about. Her favorite part about science is getting students to think about things differently.
