Rachel Kent

Fruitport Middle School & AMTA Facilitator
Science Teacher
I have been a middle school science teacher for grades 6-8th for 15 years at Fruitport Middle School. Before becoming a middle school science teacher I taught 1st-grade. Four years ago I dove into Modeling Instruction taking the Middle School training and the next year attending the High School Biology training. Since applying modeling instruction in my classroom my students have developed a richer understanding of science and the ability to apply their learning to real world experiences. I am fully emerged in the Pedagogy of Modeling Instruction and will never subject my students to the old way of teaching science.
