TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a middle school science teacher in Chicago with previous Pre-K and Kindergarten teaching experience. I strive to offer my students real-world experiences. I am a Fund For Teachers Fellow, which afforded me the opportunity to work in the field in Africa this past summer. I have the honor of presenting at the Chicago Foundation for Education 24th annual Teachers as Leaders Conference. Although I am new to TeachersPayTeachers, I look forward to creating exciting units, labs, and classroom materials to share with you, so please keep "The Science Fairy" in mind!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I maintain an easy going classroom with high expectations. Although I follow the standards, I like to "go off the beaten path" and give students not-so-typical opportunities. In a given year, we may conduct ethology studies, climb a tree 20 feet in the air, or set up scouting cameras along the Chicago River in hopes of "trapping" a rogue cougar on camera. I believe that life is a "Grand Adventure," and I strive to foster curiosity and a love of travel in my students. Sometimes they think I am too hard on them. I tell them "it's tough love."

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In a past life, I have worked with domestic animals and wildlife. I have dabbled in forest management. Currently, I teach science at the middle school level and would not have it any other way. Over the summer I was able to travel to Africa as a Fund For Teachers Fellow, where I gained field experience in research and made many a memory! My team and I maintained camera trap stations, analyzed baboon scat, secured leopard traps, observed primate behavior, and spent many hours identifying countless species caught on camera. I will be presenting "Welcome to the Jungle:Student Encounters with Wildlife Research" at the Chicago Foundation for Education's 24th annual Teachers as Leaders and Learners Workshop. Always in search of a new adventure, over school breaks you will find me on a plane heading overseas or wandering the curious and steamy streets of New Orleans.
