About Wendy

I came to the teaching profession a bit later than most of my colleagues. Prior to my entry into the profession I worked as a long term care pharmacy technician.

My teaching certification is for grades 7-12, in both Life Science and Physical Science. I have taught just about all grades in that range, during my short career. High school subjects that I have taught include Chemistry, Biology and Earth Science.

I have an Associate in Marine Biology and Oceanography and my Bachelor's is in Biology. I went to the University of Southern Maine and completed their Extended Teacher Education Program (ETEP). In May 2015, I completed my Master's program.

As far as my teaching methods -- I believe that every student can learn. I find out how a student learns and then tailor my lessons to that learning style. It benefits a student when he/she recognizes how they actually learn. Recognizing that, they can take that knowledge to the classroom. Most, if not all, teachers make it a point to learn this as well. And they will work with students to find the best way that they can learn and be successful.

Currently, I teach Physical Science, Chemistry and Physics at Richmond High School and Chemistry at SMCC.
