I have taught for 17 years in beautiful, sunny Florida. I have taught mostly Biology, but have dabbled in Anatomy, Chemistry, Physical Science, Maritime Science and Ecology.
A student-centered classroom encourages the kiddos to be engaged in learning. I try to develop activities that put the students in the spotlight.
It is a true blessing to be able to influence the number of lives we do everyday. I am doubly blessed to also have an intern to influence and shape into a productive, creative teacher. This may not be an "award", but it is an honor.
Went through catholic primary and secondary school...nuns and all! Graduated from Florida State University with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. Found I loved teaching, seeing the light bulb go on in their eyes, and molding a new generation of scientists.
I LOVE to be organized! Everything runs so much smoother!!
