I have been teaching middle and high school for the past 7 years, and worked as a substitute/long term substitute for the 2 years prior. Before I was an educator, I worked as a research scientist for the Federal Government, in topics such as spinal cord injury, and cognition.
Firm, but fair. Authoritative. High expecatations.

I have taught in the private, public, and charter school sectors, in both middle and high school science.
I enjoy SCUBA diving, kayaking, and traveling the world. I love to use my past experiences and current events for "teachable moments".
