Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
I have taught 14 years in both middle and High School science. Currently I teach Biology and Engineering at GLCPS. I work with and amazing group of urban learners. I develop both project based and place based learning experiences which also involve community internship and outreach. I believe that students learn best by doing science while teachers facilitate the learning experiences. I believe that working in partnership with community, industry, and practicing scientists not only gives real world connection for students, but also creates a sense of ownership and accomplishment in their education. The end result is that students desire to become lifelong learners and develop the confidence to do so.
