TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching science for 12 years at public, private and international schools. Most of that time has been in grade 7 but I also spent 4 years at the high school level. I love all disciplines of science and have had the great fortune of teaching most in some capacity.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is very constructivist. I rarely just tell my students how something works. I love the challenge of designing classroom experiences based on discovery.
