About Me


Welcome to my site. I enjoy writing and leading professional develop that is USEFUL to other teachers.  I hope my posts are clear and helpful as you teach AP.

I’ve been teaching science since 1995 and currently teach AP® Environmental Science at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA.  I teach over 180 students each year in 5 regular sections and 1 online section of AP. I’ve been teaching APES for 12 years and am so grateful to teach this wonderful class.

I lead professional development for other teachers at workshops and conferences at the school, district, state and national level on topics including

  • Technology that makes the teacher’s life easier
  • Technology that improves student achievement
  • 5E Learning Cycle
  • Experimental Design in NGSS
  • Successful Ecocolumns
  • Common Core writing in a science class as alternative assessment

In addition, I work freelance for publishers developing practice exams and other review material.
