TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach high school science and math. I have taught for 5 years in private and public school. I have taught and tutored all levels and all types of science! I served on my district's science curriculum committee and I am passionate about lesson creation. Helping teachers with curriculum shouldn't be passing down a list of requirements and forcing them to come up with lessons to support that list. Helping teachers with curriculum should mean giving them lesson ideas, tips, and sample lessons to inspire them and give them the tools they need to help their individual students succeed.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a mixture of demonstrations, step-by-step tutorials plus question sets, and hands-on-learning activities. I do my best to create activities that encourage students to ask deeper questions. I don't like to use Powerpoints, except as a way to display pictures relevant to the activity we are doing. I think students learn best by doing and interacting with materials in front of them instead of copying notes from a slide. My favorite tool I use in teaching is a wireless gaming keyboard that I can use anywhere in my classroom to control the computer and projector! I like to be on the move, all over my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Proud sponsor and mentor of several local and regional science fair winners. Co-founder of an award winning robotics club that started at one of the schools I taught at.
