TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Biology I, Biology I Honors, AP Biology, Physical Science, and Physical Science Honors, both in public and private schools. I've learned over the years that the best way we can care, love, and prepare our students for the future is to develop curriculum and resources that are clear, captivating, and challenging. This type of curriculum is what I pour my heart and soul into creating so that both my students and yours can benefit from it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am so enthusiastic and passionate about what I do! I teach a high-energy and fast-paced class. I love to keep kids moving and pack every second I have with them so that no time is wasted. I love to utilize inquiry-based instruction, simulations, and real world application into every lesson. I LOVE this subject, these kids, and what I get to do every day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Every time I have a student start off the year saying "I hate science" and end the year saying "I love this class" I count as a WIN! I love seeing students have a change in heart towards this subject once they've had me! In terms of a more official honor, I was chosen as the 2018 Teacher of the Year at my school.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.Ed in Teaching and Learning; B.A. in Biological Sciences; B.A. in Secondary Education: Science Teaching; Gifted and Talented Certified; AP Biology certified
