Amy Robinson - Sixth Grade

      Hands-on Inquiry

In-depth development of the Scientific Method

…and tons of EXCITEMENT!

 

My name is Amy Robinson and I am the Sixth Grade Science teacher at Gold Camp Elementary School. A Colorado native, I received my bachelor's at the University of Colorado and my master's at Adams State University. I then headed north to Alaska! What was supposed to be a one-year adventure lasted ten-years, where I ran the largest science center in the state, The Imaginarium Discovery Center. I returned to Colorado fourteen-years ago to operate my family's cattle ranch and entered into the formal classroom as a Science and Language Arts teacher. My teaching then took me to the Space Foundation where I was able to teach alongside astronauts and NASA staff. I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the most incredible science minds, develop and implement curriculum supporting science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) and teach cross-curricular education all over the country.

 

As an educator, I share responsibility with the school to enable curious, critical thinkers. I hope to provide each child with the chance to become an active learner who holds an appreciation for others, involvement in their community and views obstacles as unique opportunities. To promote life-long learning, I invite all students to ask questions, investigate and engage in the world around us. I strive to excite and provoke children to ask questions - to embrace “why?” Whenever possible, students will receive the opportunity to experience a particular topic before they hear about it. This gives them the chance to discover their own answers and successes. Peaking student inquiry leads to active prolonged engagement. This will stimulate relevance, guided discovery and logical transitions. I love Gold Camp and am so thrilled to be working with your young Scientists!

 

I can always use help in the science room:  from lab prep to supply assistance - all is greatly appreciated! Please feel free to contact me via email if you are able to contribute.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I can be reached via phone before and after school. If you get into the answering system, please leave me a message. Communication is so important and email is typically the quickest way to reach me. You can send me an e-mail by clicking the small envelope next to my name below.

 

Thank you!
