I have more than 10 years of experience teaching science at the high school and college level. I have taught dosage courses to nursing students and survival skills to students in retention programs. Teaching students at any level can be rewarding if it's done properly.
I love science and understanding the world around me. Sadly, not every student will become a scientist but they can all learn how to be good decision makers. I am interested in teaching students transferrable skills like organizing data and managing information in the decision making process. Those are skills that can last a lifetime and are useful in almost any career. Parents seem very receptive to my goals when I explain them at conference nights and it's important to have parental buy-in in the educational process.
University of Cincinnati Dolly Cohen Award nominee for Excellence in Teaching Featured on educreations.com Peer reviewed publication in the AURCO Journal.
I attended 14 schools on 3 continents while growing up in a military family. It gave me an interesting perspective on teaching and made me aware of a wide variety of educational techniques and approaches. I spent a year in Germany as a Congress-Bundestag scholar which really helped me to think outside-the-box when it comes to options in education. I graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Interdisciplinary Chemistry and did Master's work in education at the University of Cincinnati. Two of my areas of interest are technology and student retention.
I'm married with two sons. I enjoy traveling and I scuba dive whenever I get the chance.
