TEACHING EXPERIENCE

38+ years of teaching math and science, from pre-school through high school, with certification in chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics and general science. I have taught in urban, suburban and rural schools and have taught in both public and parochial schools. I am also an active member in the Network of Educators in Science and Technology, having helped found it in 1989 and serving as its editor for over twenty years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer a hands-on, out-of-the-box approach, aiming at helping the students gain skills that will serve them in the future while sparking their interest in learning.
