I have over 10 years of experience in education. I have taught many science subjects, such as biology and environmental science, but I have been teaching strictly chemistry and physics for the last 6 years. My degree is in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and before switching to a teaching career, I worked as an oilfield engineer, environmental engineer and part-time programmer for almost two decades.
I want my students to love learning, and especially love science. I have certifications in special education and English as a Second Language (ESL) so I differentiate assignments based on student ability. I want to provide opportunities for students to be responsible for their own learning, so I automate practice problems wherever I can. I also hate grading, so I automate assessments as well.
Does Student Council Teacher of the Week count? I also received the "Excellence in Technology" award from the first school at which I worked.
