Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
During the 25 years I have been a biology teacher, I've tried to involve my students in investigating their own questions through active learning. We are fortunate to have both fields, woods, and a pond on campus as well as several conservation lands in both Acton and Boxborough. For the past five years I have also been supporting students enter science fairs and I hope Planting Science will provide a framework for open inquiry. Specifically, I will be working with 7th and 8th graders after school twice a month for an hour and a half each session.
