Ron Wagler, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Science Education

Department of Teacher Education

UT El Paso

As a science education professor, all of my efforts are focused on providing my students with the knowledge and skills they will need to create a positive science classroom where every one of their future students are held to high expectations and achieve maximum learning. Based on this foundation, my students and I cooperatively create a positive classroom environment in which we build quality relationships where we learn from one another. In this "safe" space I model and allow my students to create and teach hands-on scientific inquiry learning activities with the awareness that mistakes and setbacks are opportunities to learn.
