TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 20 Years teaching Earth Science, Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Physics. Currently in progress to get my M.S in Geosciences through Mississippi State University.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Is there any one type of teaching style? Well, for me I am a big believer in Direct Instruction (lecture for you old school teachers), but I also am into CFU (Check for Understanding) while you are doing DI. CFU really helps me get whether the students are understanding what you are teaching right away.
