Mrs. Kornelis recently joined the other science teachers to make Cavitt’s science department even better, and both teachers and students say she has helped make the new seventh graders feel welcome by helping them understand the curriculum.

Before this Mrs. Kornelis was an environmental scientist ensuring compliance for air quality, hazardous waste and hazardous material regulations. She liked that job a lot, but she wanted to help kids appreciate science as much as she does.

She said so herself that it was worth the switch. She likes that she is able to teach the seventh graders. Even though she had an amazing job before this, being a teacher at Cavitt is also amazing.

She didn’t always want to be a seventh grade teacher, but few people have that as their dream. She says that she likes teaching the same thing all day, so that she can get to know it more. It also helps her get to help the kids understand it.

It’s no shocker that she is teaching science, she says that she has been interested in science forever.  Fellow science teacher Mr. Pozzi talked about what he thought about having a former scientist working with him.

He thinks that her great background as a field scientist and researcher helps support seventh grade science.

He also added, “She is a positive, supportive, flexible, energetic coworker with a good attitude.”

In addition to that, seventh grader Tyler Williams, who has science fifth period, gave his opinion. He says that she is nice and treats everyone fairly.

He says that the curriculum is easy to understand, and if you don’t get it, Mrs. Kornelis will help you.

His favorite part of class is all of the fun videos she shows the seventh graders to help them understand. He also likes making projects in class. He said that they recently created a game to teach the other students about cells.
