Caroline Callahan

Middle School Homeroom, Mathematics and Science Teacher

Caroline’s teaching philosophy has evolved from her work with Outward Bound at Voyageur Outward Bound School in Ely, Minnesota. She has facilitated numerous experiential education courses with a wide variety of students. She believes deeply that schools should seek to educate the whole person: that success is often contingent on a student’s curiosity, grit, and perseverance.

Through Outward Bound, Caroline has developed personal values that influence her teaching style. She believes in compassionate, non-judgmental communication; each Outward Bound course teaches students to use assertive communication to address issues that arise in the expeditionary team. Caroline also believes in excellence; she seeks to inspire her students to take pride in the work that they do and to constantly strive for personal growth.

Caroline is especially passionate about teaching science, as it is a subject that naturally experiential. In her classroom, she allows students to explore science topics in which they have interest and design experiments to solve complex questions about the natural world. These projects are collaborative and student driven. Caroline works hard to inspire students to explore a topic to a greater depth than what can be covered in the classroom; providing the guidance and tools for students to develop a lifelong curiosity and understanding of their surroundings.
