TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught science for twenty-four years. I currently teach Earth and Space Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Advanced Chemistry, and Human Anatomy and Physiology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a global thinker and often emphasize the big picture, because it is so easy for students to get lost in the details of any given unit. I immerse my students with hands-on opportunities, and teach them to become independent problem solvers. I teach with empathy and strive to promote growth mindsets.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I published my first book through Teacher's Discovery Science Division (MI), "112 Activities and Tactics for Life Science Teachers." Over 900 copies sold. My second book is titled "Chairs of Discipline," which is a memoir that chronicles my struggles as a first-year teacher in a compelling story (Amazon). I have also published kits through Lab-Aids (NY), Science Kit and Boreal Laboratories (NY) and through Flinn Scientific (IL). Over 14,000 of my reusable games and science kits are in classrooms across America! The list of my other publications: Diagnosis! You are the Doctor Part 1 (Flinn Scientific) Diagnosis! You are the Doctor Part 2 (Flinn Scientific) Microscope "Mystery" Lab Kit (Flinn Scientific) Salmon Run Board Game (WARD'S Science) Migration Game (WARD'S Science) Natural Selection: A Game of Chance (WARD'S Science) Symbiosis Posters Activity Kit (WARD'S Science) Molecules of Metabolism Lab Kit #520 (Lab-Aids) I student taught in Pharr, TX, along the Mexican border.
