It's Teacher Appreciation Week! So, we're sharing three new posts in our Educator Spotlight series. LabXchange was designed for - and with - educators. Our teacher co-developers and ambassadors help us ensure that LabXchange is easy to use, saves time, and also creates opportunities for both teachers and students. Thank you for everything you do, teachers!

Classes taught using LabXchange:
COVID-19 has really pushed teachers to rethink their teaching strategies and a top priority for me was to make my classroom resources equitable for all students. LabXchange is a wonderful resource to simulate labs and consolidate resources from different websites. It allows students to progress at their own pace and since I can tailor my lessons to fit my classes, it is an outstanding differentiation tool.
As I mentioned above, differentiating for my different learners is easily possible via LabXchange. I also love that my students can do virtual labs.
The fact that I can pull from a variety of different resources and modify my pathways is a uniquely important feature. I also like that there are ready made pathways if I do not have the time to create my own.
I love the Gel Electrophoresis lab because it closely simulates the actual lab procedure. Doing labs is an essential component of doing science.
I want to inspire my students to pursue STEM careers, to be problem solvers, and critical thinkers. I want my female students to have diverse role models so that they can see themselves as future scientists.
I make horrible science puns, but only PERIODICALLY!
