Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
I have taught physical science and biology for 30 years. I have had regular and honors level students during this time. Most currently I am teaching an AP research based course- AP Seminar. For 4 years I have also been involved in Argonne National Lab's Exemplary Student Research Program. This is a year long scientist supported research using the Advanced Photon Source to image various samples involved in student research. I think this will be my 4th year in the PS program. My students ahve developed dramatically in their understanding of experimental design, implementation and interpretation in this program that aligns scientists with students. I look forward to another year!!!
