I have taught various levels of Biology for 17 years. This year I am teaching Gifted/Pre-AP Biology I, AP Biology, and Biology I. I taught Chemistry I for the first time last year.
Laboratory work is the focus of my teaching. I use hands-on, authentic laboratory activities for all biology topics. My students also make models, use manipulatives, and make interactive science notebooks. Technology plays a huge role in my classroom.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher (AYA- Science 2003 to 2023). I have written numerous grants to fund my classroom laboratory ($144K), been selected as Teacher of the Year for my school and district (2004), and have been a featured teacher in several publications.
I hold a B.S. in Biology and have 50+ graduate hours in the biological sciences. I obtained my teacher certification through an alternative certification track and earned an M.Ed. through that program.
I don't have a blog, yet....
