TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Adventures in ISTEM reflects my 15 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, and my new adventure of bringing technology into my classroom through blended learning. All of these have helped me incorporate Inquiry, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into my classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching philosophy has changed over my 15 year career and my teaching style reflects it. It's all about ISTEM in my class. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math with an influence of Inquiry. 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.
