I began building educational web pages with SERC in the fall of 2004. I am responsible for building the Impacts of Resource Development on Native American Lands module, and have also contributed to the Observing and Assessing Student Learning collection, the Integrating Research and Education collection, the Advances in Paleontology collection, the Teaching with GeoPads collection, the Geochemical Instrumentation and Analysis collection, and the Teaching Phase Equilibria collection. These collections of paper and digital resources are organized and presented in a way that will facilitate their use by instructors and students.
I recently completed my M.S. from Montana State University where I studied earth science and science education at Montana State University, working as a graduate research assistant under Dave Mogk. Having acquired a New York State certification in science education, and a Science Broadfield certification in Montana State, and am looking forward to applying this cutting edge technology in the classroom.
Before beginning graduate studies at Montana State University, I worked as an Interpretive Ranger at Yellowstone National Park, putting to test my teaching skills. I have also worked as a teaching assistant for physical geology, and geology field camp. When I began teaching Irish Dancing at 19, I realized that teaching is my passion, and through teaching science I hope to make my little difference in the world.
