This is my education background: Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Harvard University.
What I do outside Star Academy: I love to spend time with my family. I enjoy hiking, cross country skiing, and sitting quietly observing nature. I love to read books of all genres but especially history, poetry, and science.
Teaching Mantra: The natural world is endlessly fascinating. As a teacher I strive to keep a sense of wonder at the forefront of my lessons. I also emphasize that science is not merely a body of knowledge but a method for approaching problems.
I believe that with proper support all students can excel in science. Every student learns science from a different foundation of knowledge and experience. My challenge is to find the explanations, metaphors, and questions that allow each student to grasp ideas that are complex and sometimes counterintuitive.
