Hello. My name is Selma Sakar.
I graduated from Bosphorous University, Faculty of Education-Chemistry in Istanbul in 2000.
Since then, I have been teaching chemistry in high school levels at international, private, and public schools.
I earned my master's degree in Science Curriculum Instruction from the American College of Education in 2016.
I joined Debakey high school in 2019 and I feel lucky to work with admins, staff, and students of the Debakey family.
As a high school science teacher, my main goals are:
- Helping my students to recognize their capacity of learning, by providing a positive learning environment in my classroom.
- Improving students` reasoning and critical thinking strategies by setting high expectations.
- Facilitating my students to own their learning and enjoy their own success.
