I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of non-AP high school science courses. This has allowed me to create materials for physical science, ecology, biology, chemistry, physics, health and more! I have focused my energy and strategies around students in a high poverty school district near Seattle, Washington. My students are culturally and linguistically diverse, and come from a wide range of science backgrounds. My materials provide scaffolding and clarity for students who face unique challenges in our schools.
My passion is for students in high poverty areas. I scaffold my science materials to promote equity and rigorous work for these students that is also relevant to their lives. I am a standards based grading teacher who aligns to the NGSS. I create rubrics, assessments and materials to create multiple opportunities for ALL students to meet these standards.
