I have 14 years of science teaching experience. I have taught grades 4 though 12, but have spent most of my time in 8th grade science, physics, and physical science. I have taught in both inner city schools and rural schools.
I teach by using art and problem integration. I teach mini lessons and then give the rest of the class over to projects and work time. This gives me time to do intervention with students in need. I like assuming the teacher mentor role as the students puzzle through engineering challenges while also learning real science.
summa cum laude for both my undergraduate and graduate work.
BS in Education, and a Master's in Science Education. I hold 2 teaching licences which cover 4-12 in any science subject. I am currently working on a graduate certificate in earth science.
I am also a part time potter. I am the mother of 2 beautiful girl and the friend of two wonderful dogs.
