Grade(s): Middle School
My name is Dr. Linda Faber. I am recognized best by friends and family as friendly, helpful and determined. I currently teach at a rural Title 1 School in upstate New York. I teach one section of 6th grade ELA, 7th grade ELA, 8th grade ELA, and 2 sections of 6th grade social studies. I also taught at the K-3 level for 2 years and the 9-12 level for 4 years. Unquestionably, “I thrive” and enjoy teaching at the middle level.
As for my education, I was a returning adult learner after the youngest of my 5 children entered kindergarten. I received an A.S. from Mohawk Valley Community College, a B.S. from Syracuse University, an M.S from Cortland, a second M.S. in administration from Cortland, and my Ed. D. from the University of Phoenix. Since my Doctorate I have earned an additional 30 graduate hours in Educational Technology. Eminently, I love knowledge and one would approximate this desire to that of a connoisseur.
Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society by helping people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye has spent the past 20 years educating students young and old about science and understands the importance of keeping minds active after the last school bell rings. “Learning can happen anywhere and at anytime – the important thing is that it should never stop,” Nye said. “We’ve put together fun, free and easy activities that will make this the summer of learning versus the summer filled with the dreaded words ‘I’m bored.’ ” AN EARLY KNACK FOR HOW THINGS WORK Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has done most of his life. Growing up in Washington, D.C., he spent afternoons and summers de-mystifying math for his classmates. While working for Boeing in Seattle, Bill combined his love of science with his flair for comedy. After winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest, he became an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Eventually, Bill made the transition to comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The 18-time Emmy Award-winning show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central. During this time, he also wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” BROADENING HIS MISSION Bill’s passion for math and science translated into a love of space. His role as CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s large space interest organization, has taken him across the globe. And one thing Bill is very proud of is the MarsDials, two sundials on residing on Mars he created with Cornell scientists. America’s favorite stand-up scientist hasn’t changed much from that kid growing up in Washington, DC. He still rides his bike to work. He’ll pull out his Periodic Table of the Elements from his wallet. And his drive for helping others understand science is as strong as ever.
