TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching high school science for the past 11 years in a variety of schools. After teaching in Texas public schools for 6 years I made the move to a private international school in Beijing, China five years ago. I have taught the following courses over the course of my career: Grade 9 Biology (every level imaginable), A three year Biotechnology Program, IB Biology (HL and SL), AP Environmental Science, IB Environmental Systems and Societies SL, and MYP Grade 9 and 10 Science (year 4 and 5). Throughout my teaching career I have worked with children of every level, especially ESL and students with special learning needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All of my lessons are focused on getting students to do the thinking. I structure each day on the theory that my kids should be working at least as hard as me. They should be problem solving and working together. I work hard to give them as many opportunities as possible to understand concepts and to synthesize their own ideas.
