TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching middle school science for 14 years, I served for 3 years as Science Liaison for Vigo County Schools in Terre Haute, Indiana, where I taught daily across several different middle schools with other science teachers in my district, and presented professional development opportunities for those same science teachers. For the past 2 years I have been teaching Gifted/Talented Science in grades 6, 7, and 8 in Vigo County, Indiana.

MY TEACHING STYLE

It's true that all students learn better when their hands and minds work together. That's why every in Interactive Science lesson the students are DOING something engaging, which becomes a very powerful learning experience when you also incorporate listening and reading.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Most rewarding experience- observing a kid who's never succeeded in science realize that they can.
