TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 12 years experience in STEM education, including teaching middle school and elementary science and STEM courses, writing STEM curriculum for a large urban school district, and leading professional development for middle school STEM teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is largely project based. Students work in teams and learn skills when they need them to complete the projects we are engaged in. I facilitate the controlled chaos :)
