TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a high school physics teacher in the great Lone Star State who is now on her fifth year teaching! My, how time flies!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is as eclectic as I am. But, one thing that remains true, is I love to bring a different edge to physics. The students always come in with a pretty fear-filled mindset. Just the term "physics" seems to get them scared right from the start. I like to make them see that physics is not only fun, it's not scary! **I should note that almost everything I post here is material I have made for regular physics. The material I use in AP physics is based mostly off of old AP questions and thus is not my work. Therefore, the majority of the material on here is not targeted for upper-level AP learners, though some may be appropriate introductory material.**

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University. (Whoop! Howdy to any fellow Aggies out there!) However, despite my degree, I realized I wanted to be a teacher, so I immediately began working on my alternative certification and became certified to teach math and physics. I think my engineering background has given me a wonderful connection to physics and a way to show my students the relevance of the subject to their everyday lives.

Despite the vast array of material out there, I find I like to design my own things. I have been expanding on and growing my lessons and worksheets for several years now and always find ways to alter or improve them. I don't know if the material will work for anyone else out there, but if it does, then I feel honored to have the opportunity to reach a few more young minds. Any questions? Please, don't hesitate to ask me. However, please know that I keep quite busy and may not get back to you right away. :)
