TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a wealth of science education experiences ranging from the elementary school to university level and in a diversity of settings, such as outdoor classrooms, farms, and ecology centers. I have taught high school English for 3 years and most recently middle school for 4 years (with a combination of language arts, social studies, and science). I have a Master's of Science in soil science and have 3 published papers and numerous conference presentations in STEM education. I am a North Carolina licensed teacher with over 15 years experience as a tutor, teacher, and curriculum designer. I spent 2+ years as a teaching assistant for university classes and as a designer of university curricula focused on innovating university science education. :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love science and the humanities. I love engaging with youth and having a good time doing it. I like to tell jokes (even if they're corny) to my classes and make lessons interesting by incorporating multimedia, or movement, or cool connections to other topics. I am a firm believer in public education, in the democratic and positive effects of education, and that by teaching all students with compassion and social equity, we make society better for all as we advance together.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in North Carolina and always loved school. I hated to get sick and miss school. I attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville on a teacher's scholarship for my BA in Literature and NC Education Licensure. I taught English for 3 years in high school and 1 year of language arts at middle school. After teaching for four years, I decided that I wanted to pursue a Master's of Science, so I could teach my other favorite subject- science!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In addition to teaching, I'm a crafter, knitter, a gardener, and lover of nature. I'm a mother of one beautiful daughter and one of five children myself.
