I approach teaching as a process that involves building on students’ present knowledge base and inspiring them to want to learn more. One of my favorite things about teaching Science is getting the students actively working on a project or activity. I love seeing them explore it and later hear them talking about how cool it was.

I feel that science is a way for everyone to understand the world; you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to use a scientific method to better understand everyday events.
