Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:
My name is Mrs. Alison Cook and I will be your teacher for the upcoming school year. I will be teaching Honors Biology, College Preparatory Biology, and Environmental Science. I will also be an in-class support teacher for College Preparatory Biology and Environmental Science.
This is my tenth year teaching at Shore Regional High School and I’m very enthusiastic about making this school year even better than the last eight! As a science teacher, I bring a large part of my own experiences (I was a scientist at Rutgers University for 7 years before coming to Shore) into the classroom and I expect a reciprocal amount in return from my students; we are a learning community! In our classroom, the promotion of self-responsibility in the learning process and the value of the “owning” one’s knowledge is a goal I set for all of the students that explore science in our classroom. Students that have the desire to question and know how to find information, make inferences, solve problems and communicate their ideas to others are well prepared for our class together, and ultimately, success in any field. We have a demanding biology and environmental science curricula to discover but I expect to have a lot of fun this year doing so!
I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. My telephone number/extension is (732) 222-9300 #4330 and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
