TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 9 years of experience teaching all grades from 6-12. I currently teach biology to sophomores, and college biology to seniors.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All SMART notebook lessons are user friendly, have many graphics and easy to understand explanations for students, and fun videos and activities to deepen understanding. I love using inquiry labs before teaching the lesson so students can discover scientific concepts on their own.
