TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a National Board Certified high school teacher of Physics. I have been teaching in Southern California for over 19 years. I currently teach three physics courses: algebra-based Physics AB, Calculus-based Honors Physics AB, and AP Physics C. I also teach an independent study course in Astronomy, and I have also taught Integrated Coordinated Science and Earth science classes in the past.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Inquiry-based laboratory exercises; quantitative problem solving.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certification, 2000. Renewed in 2010. Recipient of the Petrick Award, 2008.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Science Degree, Astronomy/ Physics, University of Arizona. Master of Arts in Teaching, Physics, UCLA.
