Description

Class Experience

I have been working as a private tutor for grades 5-12 in Science and English since 1999.  I also worked as student mentor to post doctoral and summer student fellows for over ten years while I worked as a Research Chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. During my work there, I had the opportunity to become and author in a text book on high resolution mass spectometry and as well as being part of a documentary on the Discovery Channel. Previous to my work at Woods Hole, I worked as a chemical technician in a local environmental lab working on land and water pollution.  During the summer, I also was blessed with the most incredible opportunity of working as a naturalist on a whale watch boat.  Following my time working in research, I owned and operated a childcare for over 7 years where I taught preschool and tutored grade school children in the afternoon.  I earned my B.S. in Cellular/Molecular Biology with a minor in Biochemistry from Bridgewater State University in 2000 and a M.S. in Education in 2015 from Walden University.  Currently I am working on my M.S. in Biology with a specialization in Environmental Sciences from the University of Nebraska, Kearney.  I have loved teaching and mentoring students of all ages and am thankful to add online teaching to my experiences in education.  I am a huge advocate of online learning since it has not only benefited me, but my children as well.
There will be optional readings and activities as well as a class project.  All assignments are optional because I realize that many families are following their own curriculum and activities as well. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
