About Ms. May
Hello scholars and families! My name is Rhea May, and I am teaching 1st-4th grade science at Bed-Stuy 1. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Evolutionary Anthropology, and from Touro College with a M.A. in General/Special Education. This is my 4th year teaching science at BS1. (I KNOW - time flies when you're having fun!)
This year, your scholars will complete daily "Science Missions" through hands-on experiments that explore fundamental concepts of physics, biology, geology, and even a little computer science. My favorite part of teaching science is witnessing the "Eureka!" moment, when scholars discover and understand a new concept on their own. When I'm not in the science lab, I'm probably choreographing dances, riding my bike, or re-watching Planet Earth.
If you ever have a question about your scholar's behavior, academic progress, or science assignments please feel free to contact me:
