I have been teaching science in a large urban setting for 5 years. I have taught high school chemistry and middle school general science. Currently, I specialize in elementary science teaching.
As a science educator my goal is to create an environment for students to experiment, think critically and wonder about the natural world. My lessons are developed so students can incorporate prior knowledge and learn the skills of a real life scientist. I provide students with space to wonder about how things work from the water cycle to simple machines. It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. -- Albert Einstein
Science Education Fellow 2012
I grew up in Florida volunteering in my mother's flower shop. She named me after a plant "Holly" and sent me to a science focused school in my early elementary years. I guess you could say I was destined for science teaching. I graduated from Emmanuel college with a B.S. in Biology and from UMass Boston with a M.Ed.
I also facilitate professional development for elementary teachers on the topics of outdoor learning and kindergarten Science.
