Our Team

I have taught science courses at the high school level for the past 20 years. Currently, I teach Biology as well as AP Environmental Science at Miami Southridge Senior High School in South Florida.

I love sharing my passion for science with my students. An important way I do that is by using meaningful instructional strategies and resources to allow students to effectively engage with the science practices and help them discover the stories of science.

What I value about teaching science is that it allows students to engage in sense-making about the natural world and focuses more on figuring out over just learning science concepts. Figuring out something is the key coupled with image-to-content pairing for long-term comprehension. Visual Learning Kids does just that. When I’m not teaching, you can find me enjoying life with my family.
