My teaching practice revolves around active learning through engaging science education. I use a variety of tools and strategies to encourage a diversity of ideas in my classrooms. In particular, I provide students with a comfortable atmosphere to learn while building and maintaining an energetic and collaborative dynamic in small discussions, labs, field based classes, and lectures. My style of teaching is entertaining, charismatic, and fun!
I developed my teaching skills with Dr. Kimberly Tanner of the San Francisco State University Science Eduction Partnership and Assessment Laboratory (SEPAL) and have continued to work on these active learning skills at the Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL) at the University of California, Merced.
