TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Adventures in ISTEM reflects my 20 year adventure as a middle school science teacher. I call it an adventure because every day brings something new. Through my adventures I have been trained in GATE strategies, EL strategies, AVID strategies, technology strategies, and my new adventure of bringing mindfulness, habits of success, and law of attraction principles into my classroom. All of these have helped me incorporate Inquiry, Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and principles of success into my classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching philosophy has changed over my 20 year career and my teaching style reflects it. It's all about teaching skills in my class. I focus on the skills they will need in life while teaching science. Scholars are able to take academic risks and work at pushing themselves to the next level. I try and differentiate my lessons to meet all my students needs from my low resource students to my high gifted/talented students and everyone in between.
