I have taught science for nine years at the high school level. I have taught all levels, from special education to Advanced Placement. Most of my curriculum is of my own creation.
I do believe in direct instruction and have a Socratic lecture style. I love hands-on activities, as well as demonstrations and labs.
Science and Engineering Fair of Houston: Teacher of the Year 2016
I have a PhD from Rice University in Houston, TX in Evolutionary Biology and a Bachelor's of Science from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
I strongly believe in work-life balance and try to plan smarter, not harder.
