I have over 20 years of teaching experience, as well as experience working as a research chemist. My teaching experience includes middle and high school science and math: • 7th grade Life Science • 8th grade Physical Science • 9th grade Physical Science • H.S. Biology • H.S. Chemistry �� H.S. Earth Science • H.S. Physics • Dual-Enrollment Chemistry • Algebra 1 • Algebra 2 In a small school, variety is easy! I now serve as our dean of science and assist with science curriculum decisions for the upper grades. I also provide support and resources for the elementary grades science teachers.
I encourage students to build upon previous knowledge and gain new knowledge. I incorporate many activities and labs to involve the students in the practical application of the material, and I am using an increasing number of foldables to review and reinforce key concepts. I have found that students learn very differently, but all can grasp even difficult concepts when given the opportunity. I enjoy finding a variety of ways to present these concepts and learning how to match them to the students I am teaching!
