Hello! I have been teaching at Mexico since 1985, most of it at the Middle school in grade 7. I enjoy the energy and transparency of middle schoolers and strive to make science learning hands-on. You could say I am a science enthusiast who loves God's creation. My main goal is to make biology interesting and understandable to students, and to cultivate a sense of curiosity about nature. I have been trained in project-based learning strategies, and in blended learning techniques.
