TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm an avid science teacher who has taught an array of different subjects: biology, microbiology, chemistry, physical science and forensics! I love to do different things to try to make my lessons as interesting as possible so that my students want to come back for more!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to incorporate lots of pictures and videos into my lessons. I also like to do analogies, which come in handy for hard-to-grasp concepts in science. I love labs and by the end of the year all of my students love labs, too!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have never been given an award for my teaching services. That would be awesome, though! =)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and obtained my degree in Biology and Science Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Massachusetts born and raised, mom of 3, Mythbusters addict. See my blog at www.biology-roots.com.
