My story is very simple. I teach middle school science to eighth grade students, I am lucky enough to teach in a wonderful district where the students say thank you when they stay for extra help, are polite and courteous to each other, and I love going to work. For as long as I can remember the question of extra credit comes up all the time. What can I do for extra credit Ms. Sim? My response has always been, watch NOVA on tv (or a computer) and write a one page synopsis of the show and critique it. I am looking to enrich their basic knowledge of science. I am told that the entire family watches the show together, and I know your programs have made a positive impact on my students. Thank you, THIRTEEN, for the opportunity to enrich their lives.
