TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twenty-five years in K-12 education. Focus was seventh (An intro to Bilogy) and eighth grade general science (An intro to Chemistry and Physics), and eighth grade Honors Biology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a variety of styles, depending on subject and the complexity of material. There is still a need for lectures, but I use a minimum of Keynote (PowerPoint) presentations and intersperse the slides with science humor. 5-a-Day allows for spiraling of material and lab activities help make the concepts more concrete. I also try very hard to relate the science standards to real life for my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Lots of positive feedback from former students and their successes are the honors and awards that really count. However, I have been selected as a National Science Museum Teacher of Excellence, Who's Who in education, and student nominated yearbook dedicatee. There's probably others, but I forget...

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS - Humboldt State University. Forestry and Forest Ecology. MA - Fresno State University. Biology, emphasis on Entomology

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Have worked in entomology research before I started teaching as a second career. Our research focus was Biological Control and Integrated Pest Management of Citrus insect pests. Married to a research microbiologist/electron microscopist.
