I am intrigued with the notion of not changing PRACTICE in education, but, rather, altering one's PERSPECTIVE on what a quality education is for all children. What is the role of the family / What does school community truly mean/ What motivates positive student engagement: all of these are questions that I believe should be asked in the educational community and that I ask daily as I work with teams serving vulnerable youth.
I have been involved with public education for 36 years. My teaching area is science, specifically chemistry and biology. After retirement in 2016, I was offered the opportunity to teach at SCC and I am thoroughly enjoying the experience.
