  1. 1. Billie Conte<br />About Me<br />
  2. 2. Who Am I?<br />Student<br />I graduated from Pfeiffer University in 2005 with a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry.<br />I am currently enrolled in the MA Ed. Program at East Carolina University.<br />

  4. 4. Who Am I?<br />Mommy<br />On April 6, 2009 we were joined by our beautiful baby boy, Mason. He is the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me and I love him with all my heart!<br />

  6. 6. Who Am I?<br />Teacher<br />
  7. 7. Who Am I?<br />I consider myself to be a caring person, and I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. When I say I Love You - I MEAN IT!<br />
  8. 8. Who Am I?<br />I am also not too proud to admit that I am a bit of a nerd and enjoy the occasional cornball humor.<br />
  9. 9. Who Am I?<br />I LOVE teaching chemistry and I LOVE all of "my kids." They can always make me smile no matter what kind of mood I'm in. I learn just as much from them as they learn from me!<br />
  10. 10. Where Am I From?<br />I live in Albemarle, NC. It is a very small town located about an hour outside of Charlotte.<br />I love it here because we have the conveniences of a small city close by but are still able to enjoy the peacefulness of a rural community.<br />
  11. 11. Who is Important to Me<br />My Family My Friends My <br /> Students<br />
  12. 12. What is Important to Me<br /> Church Awareness <br />
  13. 13. What I Love About Science<br />I have always had a natural curiosity about life. Science gives me the answers to everything I could ever want to know about.<br />
  14. 14. What I Love About Science<br />Science is always changing. You will never get bored because something new is always being discovered and explored.<br />
  15. 15. What I Love About Science<br />Things happen! Whether its an experiment taking place in a lab or a real life encounter, there is always something exciting going on.<br />
  16. 16. What I Love About Teaching<br />I was always told that if you were doing what you loved then you would never have to work a day in your life. I am happy to say that :<br />I never have to go to work!<br />
  17. 17. What I Love About Teaching<br />I get to share my love of chemistry with others and lots of times I get to watch them fall in love with it too!<br />
  18. 18. Important Issues to Me<br />Making sure that my students have the same opportunities that students elsewhere have.<br />Because of budget cuts, we have lost many teaching positions in our county. As a result, upper level science classes are being dissolved and we have very little money for supplies. <br />
  19. 19. Important Issues to Me<br />Getting students excited about science!<br />Because we are located in a very rural area students don’t have every day exposure to the exciting new things that are going on in the world of science. <br />
  20. 20. Important Issues to Me<br />I feel that the budget cuts have left many teachers feeling bitter and unappreciated. I think that it is very important to have teachers who are excited about what they are doing and who can make that emotion contagious for their students. I hope that somehow we will find a way to properly compensate educational professionals so that we will continue to have quality teachers who love what they do.<br />
