I'm a 20 year teaching veteran in middle and secondary sciences. I have worked both in face to face classroom, online classroom and as an instruction designer.
I believe in a minds on learning experiences. I want my students to engage the content first, this requires them to be involved in their learning. We experiment, build and design as part of our class. I enjoy integrating Google Drive Projects into class. Anytime I can involve a photo you can count me in.

I really enjoy teaching science in middle school. On many days I am amazed that I get paid to play with legos, set things on fire and take kids on amazing field trips. My own kids are now moving through my school and this has been a great experience helping me understand the impact of my teaching.
