My experience includes 28 years teaching secondary science in public and private high schools, including work with severely emotionally disturbed adolescents in a hospital setting, affluent students in a private school setting, homeschool students, and most recently public school students. Of the last 12 years, I've taught two years in a very large affluent suburban high school with privileged students, but most recently my passion has been to work with a large low income minority population in the outskirts of Atlanta. Most recently I have taught Chemistry and AP Chemistry, with some Physics and Physical Science. Through the years I have also taught Earth Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, Genetics, and Microbiology. I have also served as Science Division Chair at our high school, and served on a number of curriculum and test writing teams on a local and state level.
