TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Middle School Science Teacher; Special Education Inclusion Specialist; Science Department Head (6th-12th grade); Dean of Secondary Education (6th-12th grade)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is HANDS ON. Students should feel engaged and have fun while learning! Having fun, doing activities/games, and using pop culture/music while teaching helps students to retain the information in their long term memory. DOING is key to learning! I believe in empowering students in their own education.
