Mrs. Jan Nourollahi

Mrs. Jan Nourollahi, Ed.S.
Master Teacher

Educational Background: Ed.S. in Technology Education from Lesley University, Boston. M.Ed. from Georgia State University, and B.S. in Biology from the University of Tennessee.

Experience: Over twenty years experience as a classroom science teacher in grades 9 through 12, five years as a Science Department Chair, and three years of experience as a science coordinator and teacher trainer. 

As a science educator for over twenty years, I have found that students learn best when they are personally engaged and invested in their learning. Project- based inquiry activities give students the opportunity to be creative and research topics that interest them. This is especially effective when teachers serve as facilitators and closely monitor student progress and provide timely feedback.

It is a privilege to teach young people and see them experience the joy of learning science with stimulating, interactive labs and inquiry activities. There is no greater reward than having students visit you years later and tell you that “your class made me want to be a scientist”.
