TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach grades 7-12 science courses. In the past seven years I have taught biology, chemistry, physics, physical science, forensics, anatomy, and earth science classes. I teach in a K-12 school and work closely with elementary teachers for many science lessons. Occasionally I am able to do a K-6 STEM class, I meet with each grade one time per week to complete activities focused on NGSS standards, engineering design process, and this spring will be adding in basic computer coding skills.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on and inquiry based, differentiated instruction, understanding by design lesson planning.
