Hello! My name is Elizabeth Warren and I am happy to be completing my 8th year here in Milford! I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this year. I graduated from Butler University in Indianapolis with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary and Special Education in 2007. After moving to Masshachusetts during the summer of 2007, I worked for two years as a general science educator in a neighboring district. I have been a proud member of the Milford community since 2010! Since then, I have completed my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with a Science minor in 2016 and am currently working on my second Master's degree in Administration and Leadership through Endicott College with an expected graduation date of May, 2018.
I love teaching science because I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we cover in class. The main goal of my course is to cover the fundamentals of general science. Over the course of this year, we will introduce our students to the wonders of science including covering subjects such as atomic structure, chemical reactions, Newton's Laws of Physics, Astronomy, gravity, the theory of Evolution by Natural Selectioin and genetics. Additional information about the class is provided in the syllabus your students have received at the beginning of school as well as the copy of the syllabus linked to this website. Please read that syllabus so that you are familiar with our class rules and expectations.
I have high expectations for my students as well as parents and guardians. I believe in in student responsibility and in teaching my students to be advocates for themselves. Science and life is about experimenting and making mistakes. We all learn from experimenting and making mistakes, so I am absolutely okay including this as part of their education. One of the most important aspects of learning is how to deal with the consequences of our actions, whether they be good or bad. My request to all of you is to let your students make mistakes and learn from them. I will look over them in my classroom all year long and I will not let them burn the building down, but I will allow them to make mistakes.
I look forward to another great year!
