1 Sic itur ad astra. SZEGED SCIENTISTS ACADEMY OUR s Teacher
2 TEACHER Those who affect children s imagination essentially influence their future existence as well. József Eötvös Teachers can be those secondary school s who constantly recognise young talents and provide them with additional, extensive knowledge of biology and chemistry. Their students also actively participate in the national OKTV and in various international natural sciences competitions. Teachers select those youths who, as preliminary members of the Szeged Scientist Academy, have the opportunity to get more acquainted with the scientific activities of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Szeged and the Biological Research Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The most important tasks of Teachers are to introduce the selected youths to the Szeged Scientist Academy s programme, to encourage them to inquire into areas of research supervised by mentors of the Academy, and to emphasize all the potentials to reach the top of their profession with the help of the Academy s scholarships. With the assistance of Teachers, it is possible to achieve an interconnection between secondary schools and higher education, which then facilitates the development of young talents to become creative, successful scientists. Currently there are 21 Teachers in the programme representing a number of schools in different cities all over the country, such as Szeged, Gyöngyös, Szolnok, Debrecen, Hódmezővásárhely and Budapest, and their mutual goal is to develop young talents into prominent researchers of Hungarian science.

Later, I took part in the Doctorate School of the same institution, in the Theoretical Biology and Ecology Ph.D. Program. Meanwhile, I got my MSc level degree as secondary school biology. I ran my researches in the field of plant ecology with a focus on the distribution of species composition in dolomite rocky grasslands. During my scientific work I got experiences in experiment planning, thus I can help my students to contrive and elaborate an own study as well as in preparing from their results. I have been teaching biology in the Fazekas Mihály Primary and Secondary Grammar School since the 2010/2011 school year. From the very beginning I take part in the advanced level education held for students with specialised interest in biology. In our school, special emphasis is laid on the competitions, for which we continuously prepare our students. My experiences related to plant ecology are chiefly utilised for arranging field lessons and teaching species diversity for my students. During my teaching work in the Fazekas Grammar School I can give demonstratory lessons and methodological demonstrations, and I also participate in the organisation of the Scientific Bolyai Team Competition. Beside my teaching activity, I also work as a pedagogical developer for the Hungarian Institute of Educational Research and Development. Honti, J., Kun, A., Rédei, T.

The upcoming demands for higher education motivated Radnóti High School to launch the new Biochemistry course. I complied the curriculum for Biochemistry and Biology course. With the colleagues of my school we set up an internal study-aid. During the period between I took part in the work of the committee which was delegated by the Ministry of Education. It controlled and reviewed the syllabus for the 6- and 8 -year courses of studies in Hungary, where I commented on the documentation of Environmental studies and Biology. During my work experience I have met a great number of talented students and I have often been granted with moments of joy. In the Who knows what television competition my student achieved the honourable third place. In the last couple of years I had approximately 50 students who got into the final 10 of the Hungarian National Secondary School Academic Competition in Biology and earlier in Chemistry too. To this day our school is the most successful participant of the Pál Bugát National Interdisciplinar Scientific Competition. Between the period I was the appointed headmaster of Miklós Radnóti Elementary and High School. In the following five years I was able to expend my time directly on high school students again and I even had time for writing coursebooks. As a tutor I took part in the methodology trainings of the university students going in for teaching Biology until Besides tutoring at the university I had lectures and training courses for s of the Csongrád County. I regularly took part in the correction process of the entrance examination tests in Biology and in the oral part of the entrance exam as an examiner.

In 1998 I started work at the Premonstratensian Grammar School in Gödöllő. So far I have taught biology in classes of general curricula and also in electives for students intending to take university entrance examinations, or for those interested in the subject. In the academic year of 2014/2015 we are launching a course specializing in biology and chemistry at a higher level, in the elaboration of which I as leader of team have been taking part actively regarding both professional content and structure. Dealing with the talented students has gained outstanding importance in my pedagogical activity, so I took the pedagogical professional examination at the University of Debrecen to become a of talent development. Additionally, I have also taken part in the Géniusz in-service training programme dealing with the talent development of students skilled in the field of biological science. One of the most popular and commonly used ways of dealing with talented students is organizing 5-member student research teams with the support of the Talent Bridges programme, in which students can improve their cognitive skills by acquiring knowledge in a shared research activity. From year to year, after finishing their projects, these research teams take part in the TUDOK conferences with their scientific presentations based on the findings of their previous researches.

In our school curriculum, Biology is a subject of utmost importance both in 8-year and science classes. I teach Biology in both class types. As long as it was possible, I organized a science study circle. Later I became my husband s assistant in organizing the School Biology Camp. I organized the School Competition of Science in our school. The students involved had to prepare from Búvár Magazine and different zoological and botanical. Their main tasks were recognizing species in slide shows, as well as the classification of these species. I try to motivate my students by creating special tests, slide shows, practice tasks and crossword puzzles.
