I have been very fortunate in my academic career to have gained hands on experience through a series of research internships. During my undergraduate and graduate tenure, I have worked at a NASA center, Lehigh University, and the Jackson Laboratory.
I thoroughly enjoy learning and am often guilty of taking things apart to figure out how they work. Additionally, I love to garden.
In the classroom, I encourage students to share their ideas with each other and work together in order to make discoveries. As a teacher, I see myself as a facilitator of knowledge, serving to guide discussions and present activities that lead students to a deeper understanding of Science content.
This year I will be a member of the Freshman Academy Team, teaching 9th grade Physical Science and 9th Honors Physical Science. I will also be teaching Chemistry, Conceptual Physics, and Bridge Physics.
