I began my education career as an environmental educator. Next, I taught for ten years in elementary and middle schools. Since 1990 I have been teaching science methods and other teacher education courses, and supervising student teachers. I work with college faculty, teachers and students to use digital tools such microscopes, classroom response systems, assessment and learning management systems, and iPads. Also, I collaborate with RIC's Career Development Center and Office of Academic Support and Information Services to help students plan/develop their education careers.
