BIO

For twelve years I have taught in a high school classroom in the Los Angeles Basin. Subjects I have taught are Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Integrated Science I & II. Significant changes in my professional growth occurred being part of LASI (Los Angeles Systemic Initiative). As a result of this, I was trained to field test several inquiry based, NSF funded reform curricula. These experiences prepared me to design and deliver professional development around the use of inquiry based reform curricula.

Currently, as part of the SCALE MSP, I have worked with co-facilitators from University of Wisconsin, Institutes of Higher Education and teachers in Los Angeles Unified School District to design and deliver professional development for the Immersion Units.
