I am Laura Parker, High School Science Teacher at KSB. I am honored to be teaching at KSB and am confident that my educational and life experiences lend themselves well to edcating students at KSB. I have my Masters in Middle-Secondary School Science from Morehead State University and gained my teaching experience in award winning Oldham County Schools. During my tenure there I was certified by the Oldham County Learning Institute for excellence in teaching science. I was selected to interpret and write curriculum for the rollout of the Next Generation Science Standards. I also was certified in "Understanding By Design" - an educational model that focuses on crafting lessons that will endure for a lifetime, not just for a test. Key experiences that I hope to bring to KSB are the implementation of an outdoor classroom and as well as ecybermission, which is a virtual science fair.Ecybermission held in conjuntion with the U.S. Army and offeres students the opportunity to earn $1000 U.S. Savings Bonds that mature at age 18. The outdoor classroom implentation will offer students an on campus opportunity to study science outdoors in a real-world setting. Again, I look forward to using all of my educational and life expereiences to bring my best to KSB students.
