TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My name is Tracy and I've been teaching since 1998. Currently I am a high school science teacher, teaching Honors Biology, Medical Biology, and Medical Chemistry. Over the years I have taught 8th grade science, biology, chemistry, forensics, and earth science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I tend to begin with some sort of 'engage' or 'phenomena' and then follow with direct instruction (with a 10-12 min max on notes), then break up the instruction with mini-activities (pair-share, writing, some sort of interactive notebook activity). Then I use labs and other activities, usually one major activity per block.
