Class Experience

 My entire life I wanted to explore the ocean and the environment.  I have always had a great appreciation for the processes that are not completely understood and the unknowns that have yet to be discovered in the environment. At the beginning of my professional career in research, I worked as a naturalist on a whale watch boat and as a laboratory technician working on environmental cleanup projects such as water and land pollution. Then I moved into my dream job of being a research chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in marine & geochemistry where I was able to be in the foundation of the research community and learn from many amazing scientists & researchers who devoted their lives to exploring the mysteries of the environment as well as protecting the animals and organisms living in it.  For me, working as a student mentor with graduate and postgraduate students, made this experience one I will always cherish.  As a teacher, I want my students to be excited about what they are learning, and with my background in research, I will work extra hard to make sure that if there is an aspect of a topic that a student is interested in, I will make every effort to alter my lessons to include those topics.
Each week, students will be provided with a link to the interactive lesson in nearpod, that will include several questions pertaining to the lesson. There will also be a discussion question and worksheets posted to the classroom discussion board for the students to complete. This will provide an opportunity for students to interact with other students in the class.  A small project will also be provided, more information will be provided after the class starts.
Links to relevant websites will be provided by the teacher as well as interactive worksheets. There are no materials required to purchase.
