I've been teaching formally for 4 years now (informally for 6). I began teaching Sports Medicine at the college level and went back for my teaching certificate in biology/science. Since then, I have taught health, credit recovery biology, remedial freshmen biology, regular freshmen biology, honors freshmen biology, AP biology, regular chemistry, regular physics, honors physics, earth science, and biomechanics & sports medicine.
I am very hands-on. I try to use technology in different ways. I enjoy using powerpoint and often integrate a lot of vocabulary and quotes. I also enjoy doing demonstrations, labs, interjecting video clips, and having the students do group work (both small and large).
