Class Experience

-identify types of wave breaks and how they apply to the sport of surfing. 
-predict what beaches may produce good surfing conditions.  
-explain the types of forces involved in catching and riding waves. 
It's my passion to create unique, engaging learning experiences.  I strive to create learner-centered, integrated lessons that relate content to student lives.  I believe that my educational background in the field of marine science, professional teaching degree and extensive experiencing developing/delivering educational programs for all ages, will generate a class experience that fosters learners' appreciation for our oceans and environment.
A one-page handout will be placed in the classroom 24 hours before the start of class.
Learner achievement will be assessed with formative methods within the classroom setting.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
