I have been teaching science at Tartan High School located just outside of St. Paul, Minnesota since 2009.  I teach mostly Physics and AP Physics 1, with occasional sections of other courses including basic chemistry and 9th grade physical & earth science. I’m particularly interested in educational equity, student thinking and reasoning,  and instruction that emphasizes science practices. A lot of my approach is influenced the Modeling Instruction curriculum. I’m also a PhD candidate in the University of Minnesota’s STEM education program where I’m studying how classroom experiences influence science identity, especially for underrepresented students.
