I have been teaching for 10 years. My first 2 years were spent teaching biology. The last five years, I have been teaching physical science, chemistry, and gifted chemistry. Last year I took on the challenge of moving back to biology. But I loved it. The change was great and I was reminded of my passion for studying living things. This year, I am adding on Anatomy and Physiology to the resume. Anxious...but excited.
I would describe my teaching style as hands-on and interactive. I want my students to be engaged. If something doesn't work, I make a note and modify. I love to design lessons that encourage my students to participate, investigate, and report while I stand back and facilitate the lesson.

Graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry with minors in Speech/Communication and Biology. Persued my teaching certificate through an alternate teaching program.
I'm a perfectionist. Whatever I do, I like for it to be great! The summer of 2014, I became a wife and the stepmother of triplets (who just celebrated their 6th birthday). In addition, I am the department chairperson, I serve as the secretary of a school leadership committee, mentor to several teachers, as well as the boys' and girls' tennis coach for my school. I tell you that to show you that I understand, life can be busy. When life became too busy and stressful, I turned to TpT for lessons. TpT allows me to provide great lessons for my students all while making life less stressful for myself and for others. I'm thankful for the site and I hope that I can do the same for other teachers.
