TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Earth Science, AP Environmental Science, and Middle School Science for 9 years in an urban public school. I have also taught and introductory Geology course at a local college. Prior to that, I taught in a special ed (Asperger's and Day Treatment setting), and worked for an environmental consulting firm.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Very student-centered, activity based--hands-on and minds-on! I believe that students need to be engaged with lessons that are focused on standards and objectives.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

NSTA New Teacher Fellowship Outstanding Student Teaching Award during Master's program.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

MS in Adolescence Education, 2006, University of Rochester. NYS Certification in Biology, Earth Science, Middle School Science, Special Education. MS in Geology 2001, University at Buffalo BS in Environmental Science, William Smith College

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have 2 small children of my own. I appreciate that people want to find quality resources and save themselves the time. I have worked hard to develop materials I believe in. My materials are effective with a very difficult population (I have worked mostly in urban settings, and some special ed settings). If they are effective there, I believe they will be effective for your as well.
