I enjoy teaching and finding creative new ways to help my students learn. I teach eighth grade science and sponsor the middle school science club. I try to keep my students engaged in lessons by incorporating the use of models and activities that provide them with the opportunity to get up and get moving in addition to helping them make abstract concepts more concrete. I have created a flipped classroom environment in which my students regularly utilize technology both in and out of the classroom. While I utilize technology regularly, many of my lessons can be "unplugged."
