TEACHING EXPERIENCE

* 32 years of public school teaching experience, including biology, AP Biology, microbiology, chemistry, environmental science, and general science. * Many presentations at state/regional/national meetings.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Strong focus on guided inquiry as an overall classroom model. My goal, especially with older students, is to recreate the atmosphere of a research lab, even in groups of up to 30+ students. We don't always get all the way there, but we go as far as we can. Student experiences should be as open-ended as possible, given the constraints of the school experience.
