TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a masters in science education with a focus on the nature of science. I have taught 6th - 8th grade general science in Austin, Texas for 6 years, where I wrote curriculum for the district, and Regents 9th grade Earth Science in New York City for 2 years. I have coached Elementary Science Teachers in curriculum development, along with Middle and High School Math and Science teachers. I have recently taught an upper elementary science methods course at Penn State University for two years and work as curriculum projects manager for an educational equity organization. I routinely teach science lessons to a pre-K/K institution and test out material on my 3 year old daughter. I am entering a Ph.D. program in Science Education focused on equitable education practices in elementary science education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a strong believer in inquiry, engagement, and play. I am interested in equitable practices such as culturally responsive teaching, and Project Based Learning. I truly believe anyone can love science if they are taught it the right way.
