TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Five years teaching middle school career based electives. I am lucky to have a lab full of computers and I am constantly designing products that will both challenge my students technically but encourage college and career readiness.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is a project based classroom so my units generally are structured around one particular project or topic. All projects are hands on learning in either groups or individual settings with 80% student work and 20% direct teach. Keep them engaged or lose them forever.
