I have been teaching for 4 years. This next year will be my 5th year! I have been teaching Pre-Biology and Biology 1 my entire career. I have been teaching 7th and 8th Grade Science the past 4 3 years. I have also taught Zoology and help students on the computer with Biology 2, Chemistry, and Physical Science. The past three years I have been teaching at an Alternative School an have made it a personal goal to make their learning experience just as rich as those in the regular school setting.
I have mostly done lecture. Recently though, I attended a workshop about Common Core and rigor and my approach to teaching is completely different and altered. There will be a lot more student exploration.
None as of now but I am still a young teacher. I am sure they will come soon enough!
I graduated 5th in my class from Bogue Chitto High School. From there I attended Mississippi University for Women. I got a teaching job as soon as I graduated, which is rare and I am so thankful for that!
I have a girlfriend of 5 years with whom I live with in Amory. We have a 9 year old who also loves Science!
