I am currently teaching biology and scientific research at Overbrook High School for the School District of Philadelphia. One of my favorite things about BioInteractive resources is that they are diverse, interactive, and engaging for all students of diverse backgrounds and learning styles. I enjoy using these resources with students because increased engagement in learning can successfully lead to highly active participants. When students are active in their learning, they begin to question, think critically, problem-solve, and create solutions as scientists do in the field. I love teaching science because students are able to connect their learning with the real world and become better problem-solvers in their everyday lives. When I am not teaching, I enjoy playing volleyball on the beach, traveling in the summer with my fiancée, and spending quality time with our three fur babies.
