My career in education has spanned over three decades. I have taught all content areas to primary/middle school students, science and health to secondary students and education theory and biology to college students. Of all my experiences in education, I have most enjoyed teaching the Life Sciences.
With a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction, I am also a perpetual student of traditional education and all areas of self-improvement.
I further support teachers and the "Edu-Interested" with two blogs: Biology Teaching Blog and GKC-Edurichment. The intent of my Biology Teaching Blog is to provide general instructional plans, reasoning, and thoughts for the NY State Living Environment Course. I have uploaded each unit's presentation (PowerPoint) file, which acts as a "plan book", and the videos which are shown to students at various points within each presentation. The presentation/PowerPoint files direct the topics of instruction during the three-four weeks of each unit. The blog consists of ten posts which correspond to the ten units of the course. The intent of GKC-Edurichment Blog is to offer supplementary ideas and activities that are meant to enhance, extend, and reinforce the regular curriculum. I hope that my interests will converge with some of yours!
I also offer a way for teachers to save time with lesson planning using my pre-made, highly organized Teaching Resources. Full of engaging activities for the classroom, these assignments, labs and printables are organized by topic, with a diverse set of techniques, including fill-ins, color coding, multiple choice, hands-on, and constructed response. There are over 300 science classroom resources available which are organized by topic, so you can plan for the entire school year!
My hope is that any and all of this information can be of use to anyone stumbling upon this site.
