TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in a high school for 8 years, and briefly taught in a middle school before that. I have taught all high school levels, and grades. I have taught a variety of courses related to biological and Environmental Science. I have also trained staff on the Google Ecosystem. I am new to TPT and will be adding new content on a regular basis.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try, as often as I can, to create, and implement student-centers, inquiry-based projects and labs that make the material accessible for all students.
