TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the past few years, I have taught High School Biology, General Science, 6th Grade Science, and remedial English and Reading. Much of my work has been on the extremes of learning: My first teaching job was at a private University Model school where most of my students had a homeschool background and many were gifted and talented. My current work is at an alternative school helping students with a variety of emotional needs and learning disabilities.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love working with students who do not fit the "average" mold. As a result, my lesson plans are designed to be easily adapted for students with exceptionalities. I try to reach students with a variety of learning styles. My lesson plans are easily adaptable for ESL students, struggling learners, and advanced learners, so you can reach a wide range of students with just one lesson. I use many differentiation strategies to keep students interested.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My "shining teacher moment" happened when I was teaching a class of 7th grade students. At the beginning of the year, I asked my students to introduce themselves and to share one thing they liked about science. As we went around the class, one student admitted, "I don't really like anything about science." After a semester of class, this student proudly told me, "Your class made me love science! When I grow up, I want to be a research meteorologist. I never liked science before I took your class, but now I want to do science for the rest of my life!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate work is in Biology, and I have an M.S. Education with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Wyoming with my husband and two energetic dogs. When I'm not teaching, I spend a lot of time hiking, skiing, and horseback riding!
