Exploration Summer Program Instructor (Yale University), Student Teaching in Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Earth Science, Currently a biology and chemistry teacher at Avon Old Farms Private School for Boys.
Progressive and critical paradigms are examples of the two paradigms that I stick to when planning my curriculum. I am very hands-on and require that students come out of my class thinking about the world in a different way. Also, learning is about having fun. I try to incorporate activities that students would enjoy. I love teaching science!
