Curriculum Vitae

​I'm a 15-year veteran high school science teacher with experience teaching physical science, integrated science, biology, chemistry, environmental science, anatomy & physiology, and psychology. My courses emphasize how children learn and develop the skills to plan, organize, and implement instruction that is both rigorous and relevant to their students. My focus is to support pre-service teachers and give them the tools to successfully engage their students in the sciences and to create classroom environments conductive to learning about the world around them. Through discussions of pedagogy as well as visiting various methods of instruction pre-service teachers will have the tools necessary to create a positive learning environment for their students and be reflective members of the teaching community.
