TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher leader in science and STEM educator, as well as instructional coach across all content areas for nearly 14 years. I am very passionate about bringing real world experiences to students and this has led my students internships, community partnerships and service learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Having my first career as a field zoologist impacted the way I approach teaching and learning. I love to provide students with hands-on inquiry based learning as you will see in many of products. I am definitely not a traditional teacher and rarely have students sit and take notes and lecture from PowerPoint's. Almost everyday students are doing the learning through a wide range of activities. While I have many systems and structure in place, science is not routine--it is problem solving. So I teach through this lens. Students are always at the center of the learning and I help guide and facilitate this process using differentiated instruction, choice, design thinking, and inquiry.
