Welcome to my science classroom.  I teach Biology for freshmen and Anatomy & Physiology for juniors and seniors.  I enjoy teaching freshmen and watching them mature so much over the school year.  I like teaching A & P because most of my students are interested in a medical related career , so they are motivated and engaged.   I was attracted to teaching because I am a people person and feel that I relate well to teenagers.  My background in neurobiology and psychology gives me a good understanding of the teenage brain and how teens learn.  I constantly use this background to make my teaching effective. 


Core Educational Belief

My priority is establishing a relationship with each of my students.  I try to talk with every student every day.  I make it very, very clear that I like each student and understand their strengths and weaknesses.  I've seen so many students turn around their behavior and improve their grade when they know that we have a positive relationship.  I try to create a team atmosphere in the classroom, where we are all working toward a clear goal.  I want students to feel comfortable asking questions and offering answers during group discussions.
