30+ years in classrooms throughout the state of florida
I was educated as a scientist. I fell into teaching when the incompatibility of studying black bears for months on end in the Everglades and a successful marriage hit me. I (correctly) chose the wife... So my students "do" stuff instead of listening to me. When they have to read, I make sure it's something worth reading. When they have to write, I make sure they know it's worth writing... When they sit in front of a computer, they're going to be entertained AND educated. Never did get the hang of "busy work".
30+ years of teaching a myriad of amazing students! Everything else is noise.
University of Miami: B.Sc, Biology, w/Chemistry minor University of South Florida: M.Ed.: Science Curriculum and Instruction
I've taught every grade from 6-12. I've taught (almost) every science subject the state of Florida offers. I've taught in Tampa, Miami, Panama City, Pierson, Daytona Beach, and Ormond Beach... 15 schools. I guess I can't hold a job down.
