TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught biology (International Baccalaureate, honors, academic, and sheltered), Environmental Science, and Physical Science for twelve years. Since retiring from the classroom, I work as a consultant, designing curriculum and teaching lessons for an environmental non-profit. We focus on watersheds and restoring creeks and wetlands with students, kindergarten through grade twelve.

MY TEACHING STYLE

To me, diversity and inclusivity are key to vibrant, alive classrooms. Multiple approaches to teaching are crucial. Tactile and kinesthetic modalities are vital: Hands-On! Scaffolding and cooperative learning help everyone get it. And finally, I believe students need to get outside. (That's where nature is!)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Special moment: After having most of our high school's science and social studies classes out one day to work on restoring the creek bordering our campus, I was deeply moved to have a Shoshone medicine man in his eighties come to bless our restoration with chants, smudging, and a liberal sprinkling of pine pollen. The icing on the cake was the students' wide-eyed and respectful attendance at the ceremony.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed my B.A. in Biology and my teaching credential at Sonoma State University. In addition, I attended trainings in conflict management, anatomy, water pollution detection, carrying out and using macroinvertebrate surveys, and climate smart restoration.
