I have been teaching in the public school system for over 16 years. Running a successful tutoring service for over 25 years. College teaching for 5 years. I have been a science fair coordinator for 10 years and have had many of my students place in the top three. I conduct my own research and stay current with update trends in science and education
I am very hands on and student driven as an instructor. I believe knowledge is important but what you do with that knowledge is even more important. My students directed their own experiments and activities giving them a greater sense of connectedness with the material and their own education.
Several of my students have placed in the top three of the city science fairs with others going onto placing in the state level. My greatest award would have to be the glowing confidence on the faces of my urban school students especially, who realize that they can do science successfully.
I currently have a masters in biology with a BS in marine biology. I have a valid CT teaching Certificate and over 30 hrs of education classes. My wide backgroud in science covers the micro to the macro to the living to the extinct. I am currently working towards my PhD in biology/paleontology.
