I have diverse educational experience including a public high school, college classroom, elementary classroom, and the educational department of a children's museum.
I prefer to lead activities for students and to provide them with opportunities for hands-on, minds-on learning. I rarely teach with powerpoint (unless students are creating presentations to show their classmates), but I love using various kinds of media in the classroom.
I have been recognized by the faculty at both universities I've taught at for my teaching as well as the American Chemical Society.
I have a License in AYA Integrated Science, a PhD in Geology/Paleontology from Ohio State, MS in Geology, Master of Science in Teaching, and Bachelors degrees in Biology and Chemistry. I was also a finalist at the Intel ISEF once and an alternate finalist twice.
I am a part-time adjunct professor. My chemist husband and I share our home with two tiny budding scientists.
