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!


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!


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


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