Kayla Klein is excited to be at Day Middle School teaching 8th grade science on the Shamrock Team. She incorporates inquiry based, hands on activities to engage children in real science. She also uses higher order thinking strategies throughout her practice to encourage all students to think critically about the world around them. Prior to teaching at Day, Kayla taught in Brookline Public Schools teaching 7th and 8th grade science. She has her B.A. from Saint Mary's College of Notre Dame and her Masters in Education from Simmons College. In her free time Ms. Klein enjoys cooking, yoga, and spending time with the class mascot, her puppy Atticus.
