TEACHING EXPERIENCE

7th year teacher at a transfer high school in Manhattan that serves a population of 100% English Language Learners. I teach Regents Earth Science with an annual pass rate of around 95%. I am also a new teacher mentor and teacher leader within the New York City Department of Education. I have designed education programs in China, have published an article on literacy and presented at international teaching conferences throughout China and Mongolia.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Everything I do with my students in class is aimed to move them to a place in their education where they don't rely on me to learn, and are curious to learn on their own.
