Becky believes in the power of experimentation—literally and figuratively—in her science classes.

Describe your teaching style.

I like getting students involved and trying new things, including using online resources in interesting ways. I also enjoy collaborating with other faculty members. One year, for example, my chemistry class and Sara Shreve-Price’s history class learned about the atom bomb together from both a scientific and historical perspective.

I always try to assume the best about my students and try to be kind while still providing discipline. I want my classroom to have a positive and engaging feel.

What is special about George School?

The sense of community is tangible, impacting my life positively every day. We are not perfect, however, but we are not afraid to look our imperfections right in the face. That is what will make our school continue to grow and thrive. The people in our community care deeply about our students, and it unites us in our vast diversity.
