Just a little about my background...My experience as an educator began in 2009 where I taught high school science (Biology, Physical Science and Environmental Science) for seven years in the Atlanta Public Schools system. I also had the opportunity as a new biology graduate in 2008 to work for the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia as a Research Assistant within the Influenza Division. I currently reside in Orlando, Florida where I am studying to become a Registered Nurse. As you may gather, I value education and SCIENCE :)... as a former teacher, I know that people learn concepts differently. With my experience I will ensure you that your student or self will be challenged with pedagogy and rigor with patience.
