Class Experience

Lora Danley (She/Her): 

I began formally teaching in college, and I have been teaching in some form or another ever since.  I have a B.S. in Chemistry from MIT and an M.S. in Chemistry from UC Berkeley.  I also have a B.F.A. In Computer Arts from the Academy of Art University.  I have taught science, photography, writing, and improvisation to students of all ages and backgrounds.  Along the way I have discovered that I have a natural ability to explain concepts and to engage students.  

I want students to be able to think creatively and to be curious about a topic, but I also want them to find learning to be fun and exciting.  I try to stoke a student’s natural curiosity with activities, demonstrations, and examples.  I find that students in my classroom are often willing to join in the discussion or to ask questions, even when their parents tell me that they won't be.  I strive to make sure everyone is included in the discussion, however, so if a student is silent, I will engage them if necessary.  Students often tell me that my passion for a subject is evident and contagious, and I am happy that I am able to help students to find the joy in learning. 

Melissa Quijano (She/Her):

I teach classes focused on history and fashion. I believe that you can learn about history from a variety of lenses and vantage points, and fashion is one of them. Overall I'm a laid back teacher who likes to have fun with the content- that's why I have classes like "Meme History" where we study serious topics, like Imperialism and Communism, but with memes. I also have fun classes where we analyze Disney movies for their historical accuracy and where we sort historic figures into Hogwarts houses. My fashion design classes are built for students with interest levels from casual to passionate. If you just want to learn a new drawing skill all the way to looking at fashion as a career, I have you covered! 

I have a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in creative writing with a minor in history from Brooklyn College and a Master's in Secondary Education (adolescent social studies) from the College of Staten Island,  both part of the City University of New York system. I have also taken classes at institutions such as the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons the New School for Design. I was raised in NYC, and I now live with my fiance and four cats (my students know them as my TAs) in New Jersey. My hobbies include playing the Sims 4, traveling, making my own clothes, and writing science fiction. I am currently writing a book about the history of fashion in the United States from 1900-2019. 
Investigations in Forensic Science: 
- Students will need a graphite pencil, two pieces of white paper (8.5” x 11”) , tape, a magnifying glass. 

Where'd My Money Go? Managing Life in the Roaring 20s and WWII USA
