Mark Weaver

Carmel, IN | Years Taught: 1982 – Present

Mark believes that hands-on, real-life experiences are ways in which students can learn. In the area of science, students should be actively involved in science and their own education. His students may receive background information by research or presentation and then they conduct their own research and then share their results in a variety of formats. Mr. Weaver believes that with clear expectations, encouragement, opportunities, and with mutually established trust, his relationship with his students is productive and grows, not only during the course of the school year, but for years to come.
