TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 26 years of teaching experience in all disciplines of math and science, and 3 years of experience as a school principal. I've taught in small schools of under 200 students where I was the Math/Science department, but am currently teaching Physics, AP Physics and Integrated Science in a high school of 900 students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love lab work and hands-on science. All of my courses are built around the lab experience where my lessons are in three parts. First, we have a pre-lab lesson in which key terms, concepts and inquiry processes are introduced. Second, we go to the lab where the students practice measurement and data-collection skills, working as a team, and following scientific instructions which have either been given to them or which they have designed themselves in an open-ended lab. We finish up with a post-lab lesson in which the focus is on data analysis, making connections between concepts and observations, applying scientific reading, writing and reasoning and showing mastery of the content and skills from the lesson. My materials integrate key scientific skills and content with the common-core of reading and writing skills.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I started in Forestry, but quickly moved into Physics after taking my first Astronomy course. As a student, I worked part-time as a school bus driver and found that I really loved high-school and junior-high school students. My B.S. degree thus is in Secondary Education with an emphasis on the Physical Sciences and a minor in Mathematics. After 10 years of teaching science (from Earth Science and Biology to Chemistry and Physics) and math (from Algebra to Calculus), I studied for and received my M.A. in School Administration and was an elementary principal for three years. While this was enjoyable and rewarding, my heart has always been in the science classroom so when a Physics position opened at the high school in our district opened, I resigned my principal position and returned to teaching. Currently, I'm just having way too much fun to retire!
