       I obtained my degree of Biological Sciences from Rutgers University. After graduation,  I managed a microbiology lab in a manufacturing company. I then  went onto biomedical research,  testing clotting times of blood which helped to design  the portable machine for patient delivery. After four years of medical research, I began teaching in the Long Branch District at the High School. 
           In the seventeen years at Long Branch District, I began teaching HSPA math in 2000. In the years 2001-2003, I  was a student facilitator at the Annex, and at the JMF preschool respectively. In 2003, I obtained my masters degree in Teaching at Monmouth University, and taught first grade at Morris Avenue school for four years from 2003-2007. For the past 10 years I have taught regular and honors biology, Comparative Anatomy, ELL Biology and LBHS's new addition, Principals in BioMedical Science a Project Lead the Way course (PLTW). 

    Classes 2017-2018


    1. Project Lead the Way- Biomedical Innovation

    In the final course of the PLTW Biomedical Science sequence, students build on the knowledge and skills gained from previous courses to design innovative solutions for the most pressing health challenges of the 21st century. Students address topics ranging from public health and biomedical engineering to clinical medicine and physiology. They have the opportunity to work on an independent project with a mentor or advisor from a university, medical facility, or research institution.  Bio Innovations Syllabus


    2. Project Lead the Way- Principals in Biomedical Science - Syllabus

     In this Principals of Biomedical Science (PBS) class, students investigate concepts of biology and medicine as they explore health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, sickle-cell disease, hypercholesterolemia, and infectious diseases.   

    The project-based aspects of the Project Lead The Way curriculum give students a chance to apply what they know, identify a problem, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning, rather than be passive recipients of information in a question-and-answer, right-or-wrong learning environment.

     PLTW courses are aligned with Common Core State Standards in math and English Language Arts, Next Generation Science Standards, and other national and state standards.  Courses are designed to complement math and science courses offered by a school and in some instances are used as the core curriculum.
    When students understand how their education is relevant to their lives and future careers, they get excited, and that is why PLTW students are successful.
