I'm a science year teacher in New Jersey who has taught middle school for 10 years. I have taught earth, life and physical science.
My style of teaching varies depending on my students. I am definitely a hands-on teacher. I love doing experiments and mini projects to get my students up and interacting. Virtual labs and webquests are another great resource.
I've spent the last three years developing and implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Using my knowledge of the NGSS, I wrote the K-5 curriculums for my district and co-wrote the 7th grade curriculum. I've had the opportunity to work with several NJ state educational leaders on implementing the NGSS and have presented a few workshops of my own.
I have a degree in Biology. I also passed the General Science 1 & 2 praxis tests, which allow me to teach all sciences. I have a Masters in Education as well.
