I have been teaching for 5 years--since 2008. I have taught 8th grade science for 5 years and Biology for 1 year. My current certification is in Life Sciences, 8-12 grade. My major was Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I also have a Graduate Degree in Secondary Education with a minor in Biology as well. I believe that all students can learn and have the capability to succeed. There a wealth of resources available for you to achieve your goals and I can help you accomplish those goals, especially in science. I use the 5E model of teaching science concepts by providing multiple opportunities for student learning and exploring of the concepts. This is accomplished through the use of hands-on activities, as well as using a variety of strategies such videos, labs, interactive science notebooks which also incorporates the use of graphic organizers (foldables) and other forms of visual representation and modeling. I believe that the teacher is the facilitator who guides you through the process of learning, providing you with the tools you need to become academically successful.
