Ms. Dell 

Biography

I am so excited to be teaching 8th grade science at Windsor Mill Middle School! My name is Ms. Dell and this is my third year with Team BCPS and the Windsor Mill Middle family. I graduated from Towson University with my B.S. in Biology and a focus in secondary education. Prior to graduation, I worked at Carroll County’s Outdoor School as an intern and instructional assistant and I also served as the JV softball coach at Owings Mills High School.

In my spare time I love being outside, photographing nature, kayaking, skiing, hiking and exploring wherever I can. My true passion is environmental science and biology, and any previous and current students could tell you that I can relate science to just about anything. I look forward to work with all of your students this year, remember, SCIENCE IS EVERYWHERE!

 

My Classes

This year I am teaching 5 sections of 8th grade science which includes units on Hydrosphere and Atmosphere, Chemistry, Mechanics and the Chesapeake Bay. I also teach the Gifted and Talented Class which follows the high school Environmental Science curriculum. In both classes, I emphasize inquiry and project based learning, and I love to incorporate the outdoors as much as possible.

 

Green School Program

This year I am also spear heading the initiative to keep Windsor Mill’s Green School status. The Maryland Green School Program encourages schools to include environmental education in all content areas and maintain conservation practices within the school building. Several studies suggest that this program also increased community participation and overall student achievement. If you would like to be involved in this process, or you know of any community groups that may be of assistance please contact me via email, kdell@bcps.orgThanks for your help!
