MY TEACHING STYLE

Inquiry style, and process-oriented science. Many "labs" we do in high school are actually modified "demonstrations", as they tend to leave out the very important control group for an experiment. I think it is very misleading to students to teach them to use science without the proper controls for comparison. All my labs, where appropriate, attempt to create a complete model of the scientific process on a level that is developmentally appropriate for students and accessible to their interests.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

BEP Nissan Mini-grants "Bring Biology Back to Life" - a series of lessons that focus on bringing real plants and animals into the classroom for genetics studies. "Siegel Nation: A Leader in Biotechnology." - a DNA fingerprinting lab that provided gel electrophoresis technology in the biology classroom. Partner teacher for the The NSF Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education Program through Middle Tennessee State University - worked with graduate fellows to help students develop open inquiry research projects.
