Summary

I am a science teacher certified to teach grades 7-12 in biology or other life sciences. I grew up attending private schools and have taught in the public school system for the past five years. I am very aware of the rigorous expectations held by both private and public institutions. I am very passionate about science and love to spread that enthusiasm throughout my classroom. Science is a very hands on subject and should be treated as such. This is why I have created many kinesthetic activities for my students. Examples of these activities include: Virus Trials, Energy Flow Relay Races, and Movie Star Punnett Squares.

Communication is also a key component in the classroom and I strongly hold to my philosophy of keeping the lines of communication open with students, parents, and administration.  I am currently an advisor to students who need help with academic and social issues.  Staying involved in the school community is very important to me and I enjoy being involved with sports, clubs and other activities.

Thank you for the time you are taking to review my resume and qualifications
