San Mateo High School, San Mateo

As SMHS science classes grow more diverse, our dedicated team aims to challenge and support all students, including language learners in college prep. Our goal is fostering a love for science and ensuring success for everyone. Although the district offers professional development (PD) for inclusion, equity, and language, there’s a gap in science-specific PD. We plan to create our PD, involving observing diverse classrooms, attending science education expert presentations, integrating inclusive tools into lessons, and team reflections. Our objective is to enhance our ability to effectively reach and inspire all students, addressing the unique challenges within our diverse science classrooms.
