Dear Parents and Students,
My name is Gershon Bandos, and I am getting very excited for the start of a new school year at Akiva Hebrew Day School.
To tell you a short little bit about myself, I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and went to school at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where I majored in chemistry education. I also attended yeshivah in Israel, so I have wide breadth of basic experience with science, pedagogy, and judaism.
I am going to try to make the year fun, relevant, and, of course, a significant learning experience. You will see definite growth in terms of conceptual strength, general science skills, and self-expression for science understanding. We will do labs often, and I try to emphasize inquiry--modeling our classroom labs after the practices used by scientists in the field to discover new knowledge.
To begin the year, here's what you will need:
I will do my best to post homework and a preview of the week here. Check back often.
Looking forward to a great year!
