     Greetings! 

    My name is Yamini Mital. I am a personalized learning instructor, using blended learning strategies in my class.I've been teaching in the US since 2007 and prior to that I've taught for several years in India.  Science is my passion and I strive to share this with my students. My goal is to have every student think and live in a way in which science is a part of their daily lives. Rigor and relevance are the key words which defines my class and every student will be expected to work hard to achieve success. Students can find all my assignments and resources on google-classroom. Students will create their goals for each unit and follow an action plan in which they will decide their individual pathway for success. Science students are expected to put in at least 30 minutes of personal learning outside of class time.  I am here to help each student, and those who need interventions or accomodations can approach me for tutoring, with prior appointment. 
     
    Remote Learning Update: First off, I hope and pray every single one of us is healthy and happy. It is a difficult time for everyone, and we are in this together as a family. Please know I am with you to help you in whatever way I can in your educational journey. We will follow the remote instructional methodology as outlined by HCSS. All my assignments will be posted on google classroom and google sites (under construction).  Please read my syllabus carefully wherein I have outlined all the details. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me via email at yamini.mital@henry.k12.ga.us.
