About Me

I teach Science and PE at an independent learning academy for online/blended that is part of the public school system. Grades 6-8 are blended with students doing 50% of their work independently and high school is almost entirely independent study. HS students only come on to campus for Science labs, Art, tutorials and one on one appointments with their teachers. Previously, I have taught middle and high school science at a STEM magnet school and at a visual and performing arts magnet school. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Adolescent Science, a Leading Edge Certified Educator in Online and Blended Learning, a 3 year California Instructional Leadership Corps member and have won a Toyota Tapestry Award for Science and Literacy in 2002 and the NSTA/Pasco National Technology Award in 2012.
