TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Seven years experience teaching high school science and math courses: General Physics, AP Physics (B and C), Physical Science, General Chemistry, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Modern Physics, Methods of Scientific Inquiry; AP Statistics. Currently teaching Physics and Engineering courses at the Junior college level. Extensive experience in Curriculum Design and Professional Development (K-12 level), including serving as a District Science Coordinator. Extensive experience with state and national science standards, including Benchmarks for Science Literacy, and the Next Generation Science Standards.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In science, I prefer to have students first make observations about some phenomenon, THEN describe it (i.e. look for patterns in the data), and FINALLY develop an explanation for it. This makes their laboratory activities actually similar to the work of practicing scientists. That contrasts the way I was taught, in which "labs" were just confirmatory exercises of the explanations they'd already given us.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Selection as one of 10 original Stardust Education Fellows by NASA after a nationwide search.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. in Physics (math minor) from Bucknell University (1990) Ph.D. in Physics (specializing in the space sciences) from Washington University (1997)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I've played the trumpet for over 30 years, and use it in my Physics classes to teach about resonance and harmonics.
