Mr. Joshua Wells
I am from Grayson, Kentucky, a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. I graduated from East Carter High School there. I attended college at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio where I earned a B.S.Ed. in Middle Childhood Education. I am currently attending Eastern Kentucky University working on a M.A.Ed. in Library Science and Teacher Leadership. This is my third-year teaching at West Craven Middle School.
I believe that an effective classroom program includes an approach to learning that engages students both physically and cognitively in a rigorous, inquiry-based, student-centered program where students operate as scientists. My goal is to provide students with the opportunity to grow, change, and enhance their view of the world. I facilitate an environment that promotes thinking, honesty, integrity, curiosity, and questioning from all students. I empower my students to share their point-of-view, solve problems, and make evidence-based decisions. I urge them to question everything to promote discovery and understanding.
