TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over a decade of educational experience. My work includes curriculum development for the George Lucas Education Foundation, and years of science teaching in both public and private schools.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The best kind of learning is fun and memorable. Effective inquiry-based science instruction promotes a deeper understanding rather than simple memorization. Students learn by doing, and can apply their knowledge to real world problems.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Numerous teaching awards including the Milken Educator Award. This prestigious national award targets early-to-mid career education professionals for their already impressive achievements and, more significantly, for the promise of what they will accomplish in the future.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a Bachelor of Science in physics, and a Master's Degree in teaching.

Currently teaching in India.
