TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Still in the early stages of my teaching career, but learning more everyday.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As I am more computer-savvy than most, I make the majority of my worksheets with various image-editing softwares so that they are visually appealing to the students who are so often uninterested in Biology. That being said, I tend to gravitate towards read/cut/paste/color activities and presentations that have a lot of graphics, humor and sound/video.
