Mrs. Kate Dunkelgod
Mrs. Dunkelgod earned her bachelors degree from Oklahoma State University, and Masters from UNC Pembroke. She is married and has a two-year-old daughter, Ava. She likes to spend her time with her family outdoors, reading, and looking for great lesson ideas from everyday experiences.
Mrs. Dunkelgod is a teacher that expects a lot from her students and believes that her students should expect a lot from her. Respect is given to each student in Mrs. Dunkelgod's classroom and she expects each student to be respectful to her, themselves and other students.
Mrs. Dunkelgod's Chemistry classroom is a place where questions should be asked! Questions are essential for learning. The classroom is a student center classroom. Research suggests when students take control of the learning, comprehension increases. This “student centered” learning also helps students take on leadership roles in the class and increases communication between peers; therefore, increasing learning and comprehension (Overby, 2010).
Come ready to learn and be prepared with questions!
