TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught mostly chemistry, chemistry 1010, and AP chemistry for 15 years in a rural high school and as concurrent enrollment through a local university. I have also taught evening chemistry 1110 classes through the university. Prior to teaching high school, I briefly taught 7th and 8th grade integrated science. I have presented several workshops focused on chemistry teaching strategies, integrating the NGSS framework into science instruction, and increasing science literacy in students through the use of open educational resource (OER) textbooks.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As learners, nobody has a really long attention span. My instruction focuses on 15-minute segments of a variety of effective strategies including lecture, problem solving, analyzing data, manipulating models, developing models and explanations of science phenomenon, arguing with evidence, applying reading strategies to appropriate texts, etc. Effective instruction and learning is a combination hands-on activities, effective practice and problem solving, and critical thinking and reasoning strategies.
