I have been a teacher for 7 years, and a lover of education and science for my entire life. I'm enthusiastic about life science in particular - Biology, Zoology, Biomedical Science, Environmental Science, and more! I love helping students find their own enthusiasm and excitement for learning and questioning.
I love hands-on and minds-on learning activities that engage all types of learners. I also like cross-curricular activities, including topics such as art, language, social studies, history, and more into my science curriculum. I teach for the "aha" moment!
