Meet the Teacher!
This is my third year teaching sixth grade science at Ligon Middle School, and I couldn't be more excited! I'm looking forward to getting to know my new Little Blues!
As a Raleigh native, born and raised in the City of Oaks, I went to Hilburn Drive (now Hilburn Academy) for elementary school, Martin Middle School and Leesville High School. I attended Elon University as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow and majored in Middle Grades Education with a concentration in science. I'm a hip hop dancing, book-devouring, nature-loving puppy parent, teacher, and lifelong learner. I'm most passionate about creating learning experiences for my students that are engaging and relevant and developing scientific literacy skills that students can apply to the real world.
Last summer I worked at the Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh as a Kenan Fellow. I worked under scientists Dr. Stephanie Schuttler and Dr. Roland Kays on the eMammal research project. Along with two other teachers, I developed citizen science lesson plans, which my sixth grade science classes will get to participate in this year.
I'm looking forward to a year full of exploration, new experiences, and, of course, lots of fun! Stay up to date with what's going on in Ms. Cesari's science classes by visiting this webpage for regular updates.
