TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for the past 11 years in a variety of schools and platforms. I have spent 9 years in a traditional brick and mortar school setting teaching science and 5 in an online platform. I have experience in teaching Biology, AP Biology, Forensic Science, Physical Science, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, and Earth Science. I have taught students in grades 9-12 as well as those pursuing their associates and bachelor degrees.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love engaging my students and finding creative ways to spark their interests in becoming life-long learners.
