TEACHING EXPERIENCE

9 years teaching science and math at the high school level. Five years teaching physics as an adjunct faculty member at a local four-year college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is very constructive and student-centered. I try to let students learn and discover principles on their own. I like to see my students become self-teachers, and I look at myself as their facilitator and coach. I love hands-on labs, activities, and demonstrations that reach all types of learners. I also prefer projects that allow students to think, plan, problem-solve, and create products that demonstrate deep learning.
