About Jennifer

As you can tell from my picture with Bill Nye the science guy, my passion for science runs deep. We took this picture at the National Science Teachers Convention 2010.

I am a Biology, Chemistry, Marine Science, Oceanography, and Earth Science teacher with 10 years of classroom experience.

Currently, I am working as an adjunct chemistry professor at a college.

In recent years, I have been responsible for middle and high school AP/Honors/General/Basic Chemistry and Biology students both in the classroom and tutoring. I use a lot of visual and kinesthetic learning tools that really help the student understand concepts and retain information.

My Master's research project led to a successful patent on a marine biomedical compound. This compound has been described as an anticancer agent. My publications are in the Biochemical Pharmacology and Marine Education journals.

Some of my other experiences have included a submersible dive aboard the Johnson Sealink II in the Florida sink holes, working with the Archie Carr Sea Turtle research program in the Bahamas, tagging sharks, originating and launching a successful marine science curriculum, and participating in the ARMADA project to Alaska focusing on climate change.

I am very excited to inspire, engage, and teach science to you.
