Room Number: 222
Students per Class: 140
Class Description:
I teach AP and PreAP Biology so my class looks like a lab. I have students of all kinds in my room, but many of them do not have access to the internet at their home. I try to incorporate as much technology into my course as possible because I know that that is the best thing I can teach these students that will impact their future.
We need working laptops or netbooks (the ones the science department has right now are so old that it literally takes 20 minutes for some of them to boot up - the kids hate them) as well as digital camcorders (like FLIP cameras) to record labs and presentations and such.
My Philosophy:
All kids need to be taught the proper use of technology to be successful in the world they will soon be a part of. Additionally, technology is becoming more and more a part of the field of science and students who go into science as a profession without any prior background in the basics will find a much more difficult path ahead of them.
Personal Information:
About Me:
I'm 24, married to a wonderful man and I have two cute puppies - Marty and Lando. I have been teaching for 3 years - I started out in a very privileged school but quickly realized that I was being called elsewhere and have been at my current school for one year now. I love my school and my students, and love to show them the possibilities that science can open up for them.
College and Degrees:
Texas A&M University - Bachelors of Science in Biology Texas A&M University - Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction
Favorite Quotes:
"Never Never Never give up" - Winston Churchill

Employment History:
White House - Intern (2005) Texas A&M University - Supplemental Instructor (2006-07) SpringBranch ISD (2007-present) HarrisCounty Department of Education - Consultant (2010)
Why Do I Teach?:
I teach because I know that passionate teachers who clearly know and love their subject make a huge difference in the way students learn and learn to learn. My students this year may tell you that my class is tough - but you will find few who wish they had done it differently because my passion for teaching and for biology makes the difference.
