When I teach about vectors, I find that I often have to pull from a few different sources. Some methods for solving vectors such as using Trig functions and the Pythagorean theorem are found directly in regents review books, but in order to elevate

Students always forget which direction to move the decimal. I tell them to not think about direction and instead think about negative versus positive. Positive exponents mean large numbers and negative exponents mean small numbers. This way there is

In my physics class my students have a difficult time converting between units. Usually we just stick to converting from centimeters to meters and from grams to kilograms so that's what this poster has on it. It also has a "detail" shot of a ruler

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Started teaching in 2008. I have been teaching English Language Learners at a Title I school since 2010.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach physics in New York City to Latino students using a humourous and hands-on approach. I manage to circumvent the boredom of test-prep with thoughtful and creative projects. I was a New York City Teaching Fellow so that everything I do is created using backwards planning. In my lessons I tend to fluctuate in the order of things, but I try to stick to the workshop model.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Spoke at the STEM conference for the Office of English Language Learners (OELL) in NYC. Spoke at the National Academy Foundation NAF Next 2013 conference in Orlando, Florida. Gave a staff PD on project-based learning.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors in Physics, Bachelors in Music, Masters in Science Teaching, Bilingual License Extension

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was born and raised in Texas. I make music on the side and firmly believe it should be included in schools. I came from a troubled background and believe that if it wasn't for my art and music classes that I would have been lost. This is why I teach physics in as creative a way as I can. I find a way to take a class that can be dry and boring and I find a way to include everything I love about the world from art to music to crime shows. I even find a way to inspire the same awe and mystery that I felt for tornadoes to my students by teaching them about momentum. If there is something cool out there in the world, I will find a way to find the physics in it and I will teach my students about it. I keep a blog that I use to keep track of the documentaries I use in my classroom: Simplyphysics.org
