I teach at a small, rural school in Wisconsin (2010-present). My course load includes or has included: 10th-12th Applied STEM, 9th/10th grade Biology, 11th/12th grade Anatomy and Physiology, 11th/12th grade AP Biology, 10th-12th grade Environmental Science, 10th-12th grade AP Environmental Science, Independent Research, 7th grade Earth Science, 9th grade Earth Science (trimester), 9th grade STEM (trimester).
I try to incorporate as much variety as possible into my lessons. I love modeling & hands-on work, collaboration, creative assessments, and more. I push students to see the connections between concepts and classes, think critically, work well with groups, and other important skills.
