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.
Students will be provided a link to ck-12, where I will post additional assignments as well as articles pertaining to class content. A class project will be assigned as well.  All Assignments will be optional.
Links to relevant material will be provided be the teacher.  There are no additional materials necessary to purchase.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
