TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Together Mel and Gerdy have 17 years of life science teaching experience. We taught in an International Baccalaureate school in Georgia. Individually, we served as Science Department Chair, Team Leader, Advisory Chair, Science Fair Club Coordinators, and Yearbook Coordinator. Together, we are a dynamic pair with a flair for lesson planning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We enjoy inquiry-based, hands-on, cross-curricular activities. We LOVED to co-teach. We frequently brought our classes together into one room and teach them together. The kids loved to interact with other classes and enjoyed seeing their teachers have fun together.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Vomit Comet) and achieved eight total minutes of weightlessness (see Mel holding the sign and Gerdy's long hair achieving new heights): photo 4957_107569247805_5475164_n.jpg Walked the model's catwalk for Teacher in the Spotlight.
