TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a University of Texas (Austin), UTeach alumnus- which is a nationally recognized and replicated Science and Math teaching program across the United States. My student teaching experience provided opportunities to teach 5th - 12th grade. With that said, I've been in education as a teacher for 10 years ranging from:
• 7th grade (Life Science) and 8th grade (Earth Science)
• 9-12th Grade Biology (Regular and Pre-AP)
• 9-12th Grade Integrated Physics & Chemistry (IPC)
• 9-12th Grade Chemistry (Regular, Pre-AP, AP, and a Dual-Credit course)

For the past 3 years I served as my district's science instructional specialist. In that role I provided pedagogical support, as well as content specific professional development, to secondary science teachers at 17 high school campuses. I would say that these workshops have been overwhelmingly positive based on teacher feedback and our recent End-of-Course results in biology compared to other large urban districts in the state of Texas.

Additionally, I've worked with teacher PLCs, developed department-wide intervention plans and conducted demonstration lessons. Furthermore, I've presented at conferences across the state of Texas. If you're in Texas, catch me at the 2014 CAST Conference!

LIKE me on Facebook, pin with me on Pinterest, or see what ideas I have to share on my Blog. Be sure to follow me here on TpT by click on the green star at the top underneath my store name.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My lessons are designed for students to build upon their prior knowledge and/or construct new knowledge through active hands-on learning experiences. I am student-centered versus teacher-centered - that is the students are doing most of the work (labs, explaining, modeling, etc.).

I like to infuse humor (if you couldn't tell by the pictures here) into my teaching, while at the same time ensuring that the curriculum and instruction provides opportunities to challenge students.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am an Army brat and have lived/traveled all over the world. In my spare time I love to go to the gym, swim, jam out to 80s music, watch movies all day on Netflix, and create items for TpT.

I don't know how much more "American" I can get standing near this beautiful bald eagle.
