I was an integrated sciences and biology teacher for eight years in Dallas Texas. I have extensive experience in teaching middle and high school science in a lecture setting as well as in small groups or one-on-one. My goal as a science teacher is to help students develop an interest in science concepts so that they will want to learn more and be more scientifically literate. In addition, I make every effort to make science fun and interesting to students, hoping some of them would pursue a career in scientific fields. My teaching experience has given me the skills to find ways of helpings students understand concepts and develop strong study skills. I use a variety of differentiated instruction methods, including scaffolding, demonstrations, and multiple response strategies during my lessons and assignments to ensure students are actually learning the information and using their knowledge to their fullest potential. I truly believe every student has the ability to learn, and I try to inculcate in my students a pride in knowledge. In my free time, I enjoy reading, mountain biking, going to the gym, and watching movies/documentaries and sports events.
