I've taught for 6 years at a science charter school in Milwaukee. In my time there, I have taught 8th grade science and a variety of high school courses including Anatomy & Physiology, Zoology, Vertebrate Zoology, Engineering, and a critical thinking course. In addition, I am PLTW certified and have some experience tutoring at the university level and managing an after-school science program at more than a dozen elementary schools in the La Crosse, WI area.
I opt for a "depth over breadth" approach to curriculum design. I enjoy taking a topic and exploring it as thoroughly as possible while encouraging students to draw connections within the discipline and others. I rule through rapport in the classroom and couldn't be happier as a science educator.

I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and continue to both design and implement advanced science curriculum. I'm a sucker for board games, guitar, and motorcycling. I hope your purchase drives your classroom forward in ways unimaginable!
