Middle School Science Teacher

I graduated from the Department of Geography and Geosciences in December 2009 with a degree in Earth Science.  The following spring I continued my education at Salisbury University and began the Master of Arts in Teaching program.  After completing my Master’s degree I became a middle school science teacher.  The knowledge I gained throughout my studies in the DoGG has helped me immensely in my teaching.  As an 8th grade science teacher, I teach topics ranging from weather and climate, to environmental science, to historical geology.  It is often that I reference my experiences during field studies or use pictures that I took during courses like Geomorphology and Coastal Processes.  Having strong content knowledge is one of the most important parts of teaching, and I feel as though the coursework I completed in the DoGG really prepared me for that.
