There are a growing percentage of careers in science and technology. Developing inquiry skills is the foundation for all scientific learning and practices, forging a path toward scientific literacy. My role as a teacher is to facilitate students’ intellectual explorations and to help guide them toward scientifically valued mental constructs. When this occurs, students learn to regard science as a creative way to view the world that is capable of answering questions that are important or relevant to them. My goals as a science teacher to engage students in meaningful investigation, to teach the students to use a variety of tools in the lab to collect data, to explore the nature of science, to develop a rich understanding of major biological concepts, and to advance the students’ problem solving, critical thinking, and reasoning skills.
