TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We've each been middle school science teachers in a public school setting for over 20 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Engagement is the number one priority, so our classrooms are light-hearted, welcoming, and foster a safe atmosphere of exploration. Relationship-building is as important as curriculum standards. Management is firm but fair with a big dose of humor. Student choice is offered regularly and assessments are differentiated. We follow NGSS standards closely but aren't afraid to take an adventurous detour!

She became an educator through the MINT program, an initiative designed to bring real-world scientists and mathematicians into the teaching profession. Christian has a bachelor's degree in secondary education and a master's degree in school counseling.
