TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching chemistry for 6 years in a science magnet school. I have taught college prep, honors and AP chemistry as well as the chemistry course for our Green Energy Academy. Before getting hired I completed my student teaching in 7th grade and did over 250 hours of observations in various classrooms through the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is set up to have students do much of the learning through inquiry, discussion and practice rather than wrote memorization and drill. In the general and honors classes we use interactive notebooks to do all class, home and lab work. In AP I have students keep binders and have been utilizing some flipped classroom techniques to buy more class time for labs and practice. There are only a few times a year where I use lecture as a teaching tool.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Robert Noyce Scholarship Program Alum

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Majored in Natural Science with a chemistry emphasis at Fresno State University. Earned my credential through Fresno State as well. Was able to complete initial student teaching and then apply for the internship program. Through that I applied for my current position and completed my first year of teaching as an intern while finishing my credential.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a huge love of science and my ultimate goal is to get students excited about science. I love turning kids from hating science on the first day to loving chemistry on the last. Teaching is my true passion.
