Middle School Science Educator & Curriculum Coordinator: Teacher of general, physical, and life sciences: New Jersey USA High School Science Educator: Teacher of Research, Biology, and Environmental Sciences: New Jersey USA Undergraduate Science Program Director: College of Saint Elizabeth: New Jersey USA Graduate School Guest Lecturer: Illinois State University Center for Mathematics, Science, and Technology: Illinois USA
I have dedicated my career to developing innovative programs to encourage students to think independently and discover science in the world around them. My mission is achieved by regularly integrating a diversity of classroom assessment techniques and providing hands-on science experiences where cross-curricular student centered cooperative learning is occurring and students can connect scientific concepts to their daily lives. I want to work in education because I am confident of my abilities to stimulate the children toward personal growth and achievement in science.
