TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Four years of high school general science and biology. I also have four years experience scoring alternative science assessments.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The focus of these resources is assessment. I believe students deserve the opportunity to demonstrate higher level thinking. Students who are only asked to recall information will never create something new. Set a high standard; they can surprise you!
