I have taught 8th grade science, 6th - 8th grade Technology, 6th - 8th grade STEM, 7th and 8th Academic Strategies and Online Credit Recovery Courses. I have also led Student Council/Leadership groups for several years. I have worked with Student Council and Leadership as a class during the day and as an after school club.

When the Nevada State Middle School Technology was created, I was one of the authors of the curriculum published. Additional training and certifications include SMART Certified Trainer, GEMS Associate and TESOL endorsed.
The teaching style I utilize is Constructivist. I enjoy facilitating my students journey of discovery as I differentiate for success for all students in my class.
