TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Since 1990, I've taught physical science, earth science, and astronomy in Texas and Minnesota. I've created NASA programs for the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, and have created curriculum and assessments for use at the district and state level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Science makes sense. Here is the effect, now what is the cause? Teach for understanding the big ideas, relationships and cause and effect.
