I’m a high school science teacher with a Ph.D. in ecology and evolution. I have taught high school science, mostly biology, since 1991. I have also taught various college courses as an adjunct in biology and education. In 2009 I published a book with Physicist Matt Young titled Why Evolution Works (and Creationism Fails) through Rutgers University Press.
I am passionate about teaching in general and about improving my teaching and sharing best practices with others. I am also dedicated to teaching students how science works in our current world of unregulated pseudoscience and rampant science denial.
