I have taught in informal educational environments for over three years. From LEGO Engineering camps with Building Minds to OCCC's College for Kids program, I bring the joy and excitement of science to kids of all ages. I have also worked in museums and university tutoring programs, so I have a wide range of experience when it comes to teaching and education.
My teaching style is based on the 5E learning cycle that is taught at the University of Oklahoma's Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum. This style emphasizes the ABC's of education: activity before concepts. As an informal education, my classes are a little less structured than traditional classrooms, and focus on hands-on activities and experiments that get kids engaged and excited about science.

I have a Bachelor's degree in anthropology from the University of Oklahoma and I am in my second year of my Master's in Science Education at OU. I am currently studying under the Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum program in the College of Education on campus.
I have taught over a dozen informal science classes at the College for Kids program at OCCC in Oklahoma for two years now. I have taught classes including the Science of Star Wars, Mythbusters Jr., Primatology, Forensic Science, Environmental Science, and so many more. I have also been involved with teacher workshops in Oklahoma with Oklahoma Educator's Evolve, a non-profit organization that provides free professional development workshops to Oklahoma teachers. My passion and focus is on informal education and providing both students and teachers with out-of-classroom support and resources.
