Biology Anatomy Physics Environmental Science Bilingual / ELL Biology
A focus on science literacy: knowing how to ask questions, interpret graphs, and decipher diagrams... Sprinkle in some labs and hands-on simulations and voila! Biology. I like students to be able to make connections between what we learn in class and how it is being applied in the real world.
Not so far... unless we count the "Teacher most likely to tell a bad joke" as an honor. :P

I've worked as a naturalist and a field assistant before making the switch to education. My house: 2 adults, 4 kids, 2 cats, 1 corn snake, 1 lizard. Lots of chaos! Do you even science, bro?
