My teaching environment is based on cooperation, and grounded in respect for self, others, and the subject at hand. Only then can a true sharing of knowledge take place. Learning is multi-faceted and is best accomplished using a variety of teaching styles. Targeting the senses through visual, audio, and hands-on approaches is key. Inquiry-based learning is another method I use to promote cooperation among students. Throughout the learning process, a good sense of humor is a must!
I am a licensed teacher recently retired from Walnut Hills High School where I taught Chemistry, Biology, and CCP Anatomy & Physiology. My teaching career spans over 30 years and includes both St. Ursula and Ursuline Academy.
Currently, I tutor remotely using Zoom as part of the Tutoring Center at Cincinnati State College.
