TEACHING EXPERIENCE

First, I would like to introduce myself: I've been a high school science teacher since 2005, with a goal of being a great marine science teacher. I began teaching in Florida in 2007, and at that time I began teaching the subject I love: Marine Science. Currently, I teach marine science 1 and 2, and I have some of the best students, who make my job fun. I am a lifetime member of the Florida Marine Science Educators Association, and have always loved the ocean since I could remember. My photo is of my best bud, Puff Puff McGuff, he's my underwater "dog" and class mascot who LOVES snails, blood worms, mole crabs, and crabs. He actually really loves the kids, and the kids love to feed him. He's so charismatic and just adorable. While aquariums are a lot of work, I recommend them for sure in a marine science or biology classroom. I get my kids involved, well as much as I can - there's so much to cover content wise.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching is challenging, which is why I love it. I am honestly not sure what to say about my teaching 'style' - but I can say that I like to vary every lesson, and appeal to the multiple intelligences that we face day to day. I am also goofy, odd, and corny - make the kids laugh you know? For example, my water cycle RAFT assignment, listed here on TPT is paired up with Tom Petty's 'Into the Great Wide Open' - since water molecules evaporate and pretty much do just what Tom's song says. I have a salt water heat capacity lab (not yet on TPT) that ties into Adel's 'Rumor has it' song - rumor has it salt lowers heat capacity and cooks pasta faster.. rumor has it. Sometimes, I walk down fake steps behind my large front demonstration desk, and from the kids seas it looks like I'm walking into the classroom's 'basement' to get something, and the kids laugh. The key is to not make your classroom a circus but make it a place the kids want to be and a place they want to, and know how to, learn in.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors degree in marine science and biology in 2003. I started towards my first Masters degree in 2006 at the University of Mary Washington in secondary education so I could become a teacher. Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you look at the glass), a new teaching job in 2007 took me to Florida and I was not able to finish that degree. My most recent degree was my Masters in educational leadership from Stetson University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

The only other job I think I'd do, if I was not, and could not be, a marine science teacher, is driving trains. Who does not like trains?
