Teacher of high school Biology, Human Anatomy/Physiology, and Forensics.
The above quote is credited to Maria Montessori. My teaching style is to create engaging, visually and mentally stimulating assignments to keep the students motivated and interested in learning the content. Then the assignments that follow can be completed on their own, with very little assistance from me. I create PPT's, open notes, and drag and drop activities along with Word worksheets and computer activities. Most PPT's and open notes activities come with an accompanying graded worksheet. Most all of the work posted in my store comes with a KEY. I use a Promethean Board projector every day in my classroom, and my assignments reflect use of this technology. However, any type of projector can be used. I've learned that teachers are super-resourceful and can accomplish just about any task or obstacle!

I'm a 'career switcher' (retired chiropractor) now teaching Biology I and II on the high school level. I love my job and want to share what I know about the human body. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, gardening, photography, making jewelry and anything that has to do with art - especially if it's art in the garden!
