"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
Hello and welcome to Mrs. Bauman's 8th grade science class!
My goal this year is to help my students be successful by giving them guidance, encouragement, and support as they learn and grow.
In my free time, you can find me serving in my local church as a youth mentor, cooking/baking, hiking, working out, gardening, drinking coffee, reading and spending time with my husband and our pup, Nova!
My favorite aspect of teaching is building relationships with my students. I believe this step is crucial in cultivating a positive learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and exploring their ideas!
I fell in love with education at an early age while helping in Sunday School at my church and by watching my mom (a now thirty-year-teaching veteran). In high school, I discovered a passion for chemistry and other sciences and gained teaching experience through tutoring my peers. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Middle School Math and Science Education and will complete my Masters of Education in Effective and Reflective Teaching program through Clemson University this December.
After receiving my Bachelor's degree, I was blessed to join the Wren Hurricanes family where I have been teaching the last four years!
Education is a life-long journey- my students are constantly teaching me! I am very excited to be a part of the Wren community and to invest in the lives of my students. This will be a year of growth as we learn and develop together!
