I have a bachelors of science in Physics and Mathematics, and a Master’s in Science Education. I have been a teacher of physics, earth science and mathematics for the past 24 years. During the 2020-21 school year, I took a leave of absence in order to stay home with my school-aged son and support his remote learning. During this time, I have been involved in Physics Education Research for the American Modeling Teachers Association with the Magna-AR app from Physics Toolbox. I have also been involved in reading and writing for the AP Physics 1 exam for the College Board and leading workshops as an Ambassador for STEP UP.
