Carole Zboray

Middle School Science Department Chair

Mrs. Zboray not only teaches science, but also studies the neuroscience of how we learn and applies it to her classroom. Her toolkit of various teaching methods - like interactive notebooks, response boards, student cohort groups, and hands-on dissection - give her students the tactile experiences and “Aha!” moments that develop more neural connections in the brain, thus solidifying learning in the long term.
