My name is Ms. Thompson and I teach Biology. The most important piece of advice I can give students taking Biology is to allow me to get to know you by participating. I do not care particularly that you are 100% correct in your answer, but that you are putting effort forth and paying attention to what has already been said. Remember that putting your hand up shouldn’t result in your ears shutting down. Listen to what your classmates are saying and respond appropriately with respect. Often, students struggle because they are not putting forth their best effort, but if you work hard, you can be much more successful.
This is a new year and every single student has a chance to make this the best year yet. So, don’t forget to get involved and make good impressions!
