TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Initially, I taught science and math for 12 years at a local junior high/middle school.  During this time, I provided numerous presentations and workshops for elementary and middle level science teachers throughout the Atlantic Provinces.  In 1993, I was appointed to a full-time faculty position at St. Thomas University in the Education Department.  My primary teaching responsibilities were the K-12 science methods courses as well as the 6-12 math methods courses.     During my tenure as associate professor, I continued to provide presentations and/or workshops for elementary/middle level teachers.  One of my more memorable presentations was provided in Toronto at NSTA’s regional conference (1996). 

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a chemistry graduate student, I gained first hand knowledge of problem-based research and thus immediately recognized the deficiencies of science education within the public schools.  At the time (1981), there was an obvious lack of inquiry-based curriculum materials.   Therefore, it seemed natural to also pursue an education degree specializing in science education. As a science educator, I am fully aware of NSE standards as well as pedagogically sound teaching practices based on constructivist learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

During my years as a St. Thomas University faculty member, I worked in collaboration with Science East (our provincial science museum - http://www.scienceeast.nb.ca) to develop curriculum materials which complement their elementary and middle level outreach programs.  Furthermore, I collaborated in the delivery of their summer institutes for elementary science teachers.
