TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a high school biology teacher for 34 years! In that time, I have used drawing as a tool to understand concepts. I have also enjoyed making coloring pages and using other coloring books for Biology and Anatomy. Students often say that they can't draw, but find that they begin to do better at it with practice. I have also taught Health and Anatomy and Physiology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I do some lecture, lots of activities and labs and try to involve the students as much as possible in their learning. We use a cornell note type note format with lots of room for drawings and diagrams.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was lucky to be chosen to be a mentor teacher a few years ago. I loved mentoring new teachers, and still do.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BS in Biology and a Masters degree in Public Health. My teaching credential is a single subject in Biology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a mother of three- two of whom are teachers. My kids always knew that it was the best job in the world. I loved that I could be home in time to be there for my two growing boys, and daughter while they played all of their sports and enjoyed all of their activities. I still think it is the best job in the world.
