Class experience

US Grade 7 - 10
Students will strive to become active citizens scientists and participate in real projects headed by scientists seeking assistance from the public, especially students who have a desire to become professional scientists. 
I am an experienced educator with a bachelor's of science from Ithaca College. I'm currently working towards my Master's Degree in Education with over three years of study so far and my dissertation remaining. In addition to that work, as a graduate student, I consistently seek out workshops and webinars that provide additional certifications for educators. My experience as an educator includes teaching at both public and private schools as well as tutoring students in STEAM subjects including SAT/GRE/ACT/ & AP prep, I have experience and training in teaching individuals with both Learning Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities. I have also volunteered my time in my local community library by organizing workshops on STEAM topics for children.  

For over ten years now, in my personal time, I have been active in the Citizen Science community participating in projects when possible. In recent years, when the opportunity arises I try to incorporate the awareness of these projects in some of the STEM-based classes that I teach, but I want to bring a greater awareness of the possibilities of Citizen Science to as many students as possible. The great part of Citizen Science is that ALL are welcome to participate despite lacking any particular degree in science. Each project has detailed instructions and tutorials and for those willing to learn a great opportunity awaits!  I would be an excellent guide on the student's journey utilizing my previous experience of the process to help clear a path of learning for them.
