Hello! My name is Abbie Butler. I have a B.S. degree in Biology, and an AYA Teaching License in Life Sciences. I attended and graduated (2013) Muskingum University in New Concord, Ohio. I student taught in grades 7-8 and substitute taught in grades k-12. I have taught High School Life Sciences (Biology/ Anatomy/ Zoology/ Oceanography/ Nutrition/ Botany/ Horticulture/ Environmental Science /knit and crochet club) for the past five years. I enjoy all areas of Life Sciences, as well as Chemistry. Additionally, I have taught ESL online for a year now. My lessons will focus in Anatomy, Biology, Zoology, Botany, Environmental Science, STEAM, lab based lessons and Crochet and Knitting for various ages ranging from 9-18.
My teaching styles involve more of a hands on and student based practice/application process. There will be many areas of interaction and practice in the lessons. Most lessons are set up as a powerpoint/teaching section, practice, application, teach another small section, and then have another area of practice, finally review and summarize the lesson before saying goodbye.
My philosophy is you learn best when you are involved in your learning. My focus is for you to comprehend the content for mastery and long term use. It is easier to learn with practice and activities rather than lecture the entire lesson. Therefore, class will have various dynamics and interactions.
I enjoy to go bike riding, fishing, go for walks and enjoy nature. My hobbies are crocheting and knitting, as well as enjoying time with my family.
We will have a lot of fun in class. You will leave my classroom confident with your new content knowledge. I will also ensure you have enough practice resources and variation to continue learning outside of class. Items will be shared via hyperdocs made with google docs the day of class.
Thank you! I hope to see you soon!
