TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach Conceptual, Academic, Honors, and AP Physics, and an Algebra Test Prep course for students that failed the state exam (Keystone Exam). I have a lot of other products in my store since I am always helping other teachers. My non-physics products mostly target a single math standard or skill. I attend a lot of national conferences (AAPT, NSTA, NCMT, & NECC), do multiweek summer programs, and am a reader for the AP Physics B Exam.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Effective ;) lol

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm not sure if it fits this category.....but I was honored to be selected for these elite programs:

* a RET (research experience for teachers) program at Cornell Univ. for 6 weeks in '08

* the Dept of Energy's ACTS (Academy Creating Teacher Scientists) at Princeton Plasma Physics Lab for 7 weeks each summer in '09 & '10

* the national Quarknet program focusing on particle physics

* Invitation and full funding to attend the annual Teacher Workshop at the Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara in '12, '13, & '14

* RET Program at Baylor University for 7 weeks each summer in '12, '13, & '14

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in Physics - Lycoming College

MA in Physics Education - Univ of Virginia

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I don't think there are a lot of physics teachers here at TpT, my other items sell much better. I've made cute borders, a lot of math test prep items, and other random things. If physics sales ever pick up, I'll clean up more of my stuff for posting. Pretty much EVERYTHING I use in my class is something I made myself.
