I have taught science for the past five years to students in 8th- 12th grade. Subjects I have taught include: general science, integrated physics and chemistry, chemistry, AP Chemistry and (most recently) introduction to engineering design. In addition to my classroom experience, I have served as a campus educational technology facilitator, professional development planner and engineering department chair. I have spent the past four years developing Project Based Learning (PBL) curriculum that is relevant to STEM content areas.
I believe that students learn best when they are given just enough support to find the answers on their own. My classroom regularly has students working on a variety of different things in a variety of different ways to reach their academic needs. I deliver a majority of my content through Project Based Learning which allows students to authentically engage with the content and easily apply their learning.
I have presented at the National Science Teacher Association National Conference as well as the Science Teacher's of Texas State Conference.

I believe that all students have the right to be empowered through a high quality education and am a passionate advocate for equality and justice within schools. As a teacher, I consider it my great honor and privilege to spend my days working with the future of our society. I strive to instill values like: curiosity, adaptiveness, innovation, and perseverance in all of my students in hopes that each of my student’s communities will also grow to reflect those values. You will frequently hear me tell my students that if they leave my classroom a better scientist but not a better human I have not done my job.
