As a science instructor at DCCC, my daily goal is to foster critical thinking in a safe, collaborative learning environment. My primary interest is non-major earth science education in laboratory and online/blended environments. At DCCC I teach Earth and Space Sciences, bringing more than a decade of experience teaching a variety of physical and natural sciences at the secondary and undergraduate levels.
