I have 17 years experience teaching all levels of Biology, including general biology, and several years of advanced placement. I also teach Forensic Science and Zoology as elective courses.
I have a passion for life science and do my best to spread that to my students. I try to make learning fun and incorporate hands-on activities and real-world examples as much as possible. I pride myself on organization, hard work, and creativity.
