TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 10 years of teaching experience at the high school level. I have taught academic, honors, and AP level Biology. I have worked on developing curricula, assessments aligned with the NJ and NGSS standards, and have made it a goal of mine to implement as much student-driven learning. My activities are problem-based, inquiry drives, and cooperative learning. Real world problems and application of knowledge are what our students will face and I try to design lessons that will enhance their skills to be successful members of the general and scientific community.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student-centered, problem based, inquiry driven.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Undergraduate work in Biology at Ramapo College of NJ Graduate work at the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers, The State University of NJ

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am passionate about teaching and exposing students to the science in their everyday lives. It is important to me that they walk out of my classroom respecting the science process and being critical of what they see/hear everyday so they can make informed decisions about what is going on in the world around them.
