I’m a science teacher at a charter school outside of Boulder, Colorado. I teach chemistry at a variety of levels and also coach our school’s Speech & Debate team. A biochemist by training, my career path took an abrupt turn years ago when I left research to pursue teaching science at the high school level…and I haven’t looked back since. After more than a decade of working with teenagers, I am still as excited today as I was on my first day in front of students. After experiencing first-hand how transformative technology can be for student achievement, I’m pursuing a Master’s in Educational Technology to learn not only the most effective ways to integrate new technologies into my classroom, but also how to design and create novel pathways to success for my students and fellow educators.
