After obtaining a doctorate in Microbiology, I became certified to teach and now currently have nearly 25 years’ experience teaching science at the elementary, middle, secondary, and college levels. I have taught pre-K science and college science and everything in-between! I have been a consultant for the Columbia University School and have presented multiple times at national and regional NSTA conferences. I also taught Elementary and Secondary Science Methods classes at Marist College. I am the author of the Dr. Dave’s Science Teaching Manuals, a series of innovative instructional manuals for elementary, middle-school and secondary science teachers that can be found at drdavesscience.com. More recently I have written the 9th and 10th grade science curriculum for the Success Academy Charter Schools in NYC.
Hands-on, inquiry-based, and student-friendly science. Students love to learn science!
