Heyy Mrs. C! I was in your class this year, in the honors class!
You were the BEST science teacher that I've ever had! I loved the gas bubbles
and the fire dancing thing. You're amazing! I can't wait to see you next year,
maybe as a new journalist I can do an interview wiht you ;)
Mrs. C, I was in real estate license class with your son the weekend he
came out to your celebration. I really enjoyed the article and appreciate
you're being a real life Ms. Frizzle! Congratulations!Sheryl McCloskey,
Awesome Mrs. Chivuk! You ttly deserve this award you make science so much fun
and actually interesting to learn about! Thanks for everything:)
Thanks Mrs. C. When my son was in your class 2 years ago, you were also
teaching me 7th grade science (lots of homework as I recall). I have another
son coming your way next school year. Looking forward to it.
Way to go, Mrs. C !!!!!!This is so cool...You are a role model and
deserve the award. Please pose these "tricky" questions on the web for the
entire science world to enjoy.Thanks to "deseretnews" for sharing
Mrs. Chivukula has taught several of our children science over the years. We
appreciate all her hard work! I am so happy she has received this award, she is
a great teacher! Thank you Mrs. Chivukula!
Science is cool. Watch out for the Swine Flu over there.
Cool! I wish I had a teacher like that!
That is awesome. I also teach science and your class sounds very fun. It is
nice to be able to go outside of the curriculum and add a few attention getters
like you have done.My only wish is that all of Utah would switch to
have 7th grade science as a year long class instead of only one semester.We complain our kids are behind in science then we only have them take
science for one semester?It sounds like she teaches in one of the
districts that actually let her teach it for a full year instead of only half a
year. In the half year schedule there is no way to add these extra things
because you have to rush through everything because the dreaded end of year test
is coming. How nice would it be to actually have time to explore a few options
and branch out a little bit when the kids show high interest in one particular
topic.Sorry for the rant. Mrs. Chivukula, thanks for
being a great asset to our profession and getting those kids excited! We
definitely need more teachers like you!
NO she is not
Could it be she is teaching the ancient India custom of laying (walking) on
to do the bubble on fire expirement she filled bubbles with propane and we lit
them on fire with a candle taped to a meter sitck. She is a great teacher. I
am one of her students.
I am one of her students and she is just a great teacher. My favorite
expirement was the bubble on fire.
how do you do the bubble on fire experiment
What a neat teacher...how fun to learn all these things and about another
culture as well. Thank you, for sharing your wonderful talents with our
children...their lives will be blessed forever by your dedication. What a
refreshing story! Thanks!
What a wonderful woman--thanks so much for this story!
Thank you for dedicating your life to teaching. Four of our children have been
in your class and we feel privileged to have such a teacher. We are so thrilled
for you to receive this honor!
My daughter had Mrs. Chivukula last year and she is amazing! She is a wonderful
teacher and makes science fun for her students. Congratulations Mrs. Chivukula!
Try getting all this and more at home school!Most teachers in different subjects
do this(if not they should). It beats the pants off of sitting at the kitchen
table looking through books. Oh, the teacher is a mom at the head of a kitchen
table with no education degree. And little bro's and sisters running around
Congratulations Mrs. Shyamala Chivukula we need more teachers like you.
