Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
Taught project based learning curriculum since 1998. Emphasis on science as a way of understanding our world, and explorations , observations, and experiments as means to find answers to problems we encounter. My passion is guiding students through the discipline of science as they find new ways to search for truth. One of my favorite research topics was with a 4th grade class expressing concern over the amount of trash in the school. They designed and completed a study to separate and weigh the food waste/ non food waste in the cafeteria. Messy but fun science. I've taught science ages 6- 26. Teaching new teachers science methods for children was also a good experience.
