TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 22 years of experience teaching science in grades 6-12 and have been actively involved in developing and teaching professional development opportunities related to science instructional best practices. In addition to my regular work for district curriculum committees and numerous professional development sessions, I have taught over the past 20 years for my current district. Some other relevant experiences included I was one of the Wisconsin State Forward Exam Item reviewers for the 8th-grade science exam in multiple years, and have presented at both the NSTA National Conference in Chicago in 2015 and the NSTA Regional Conference in Milwaukee in 2017.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Part of the work I do at my school includes duties as a vertical team leader for all 11 science teachers in grades 6th-8th, facilitating our professional learning community and coordinating with my building and district administration to improve science instruction. As part of these duties I do research on science best practices, such as the 5e instructional model and the CER or claim, evidence, reasoning writing framework for science explanations and develop short professional development sessions for our staff. I also work with my grade level team of science teachers and special education teachers to develop common assessments and to make appropriate accommodations for students. I am also a formal and informal mentor to a number of teachers both in my content and in other subjects as well.
