The Science and Math teachers at Ralph R. McKee are talented, skilled, and caring professionals that are devoted to the academic, social, and emotional development of each and every student in their school. Students are taught the importance of being good citizens. Educational technology applications will deepen student engagement and improve student achievement by enabling them to access and analyze information, solve problems, collaborate with others, and communicate their thoughts and ideas. Effective uses of inquiry based learning are applied to allow students to become creative thinkers, self-motivated, and lifelong learners. Teachers increasingly will be facilitators of student learning through proficient use of learning technologies and effective pedagogy.
