During my college years studying Life Science Education, Microbiology was my favorite class. Health as it pertains to Biology has always been an interest of mine. I have gained more knowledge in the area from teaching High School science, including a Medical Science course, as well as working in the healthcare field while in college. During college I had a  year-long study of Scientific research and how to conduct and interpret research in order to get the most accurate and reliable information. I have a passion for passing that very important knowledge on to my students!

Students will not need to purchase any materials. I will provide all instructional materials including: Power Point notes, learning goals, worksheets, quizzes, activities, and discussion forums. I will direct to other websites and YouTube videos to aid instruction.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through the work they turn in to me, as well as the questions they ask and answer on the discussion forums. 

I will be sure to give timely feedback on any work turned back in to me!
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
