TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 6th grade science in South Carolina for 5 years. I love working with middle schoolers, helping them to develop critical thinking skills. I also enjoy developing classroom activities and educational tools to assist my students in their studies of science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to provide students with hands-on learning experiences where they can develop their own understanding about how the world around them works.
