I am pleased to be returning to SCUC and Clemens High School again for the 2020-2021 school year. Last year was my first year back in the high school classroom after spending the previous 10 years in a variety of roles including district curriculum leadership and teaching/working in higher education (Rice University, Texas A&M, UTSA, Trinity, and UT Health-San Antonio). My areas of interest/research include K-12 science education, science literacy, metacognition, critical thinking and problem solving. Having expereinced how students use the knowledge that they gain during K-12 education once they get to college, I have incorporated teaching and learning strategies into my courses to help students avoid many of the typical pitfalls that they may experience after they graduate and entire college, the military, or the workforce. I am looking forward to engaging students with these concepts as they learn about all things physics.
