Anissa Rodriguez has been teaching at Miami Southridge Senior High School for five years.
During that time, she has taught Biology and AP Biology. Although she has not been in the classroom very long, she has over ten years of experience working in education in informal settings such as zoological parks.
Ms. Rodriguez emphasizes the importance of hands-on learning in her classroom and relating lessons to real life applications. Although Ms. Rodriguez did not originally intend to become an educator- often citing that she is a Biologist first and an educator second- she has evolved into her role as an educator and an outstanding content-builder, oftentimes described by her students as a real-life Ms. Frizzle. “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”
