Detroit Public Schools Community District
Science teacher
I began teaching for Detroit Public Schools Community District in 2000. Since moving to middle school at Henderson Academy in 2012, I have had many opportunities to learn effective pedagogy through vertical teams and Science Saturdays professional development. Navigating NGSS implementation began fall 2016 with an introductory course to NGSS followed by NGSX, modeling instruction, and writing science performance assessments. Each of these professional development experiences and more were foundational in preparing me to enact the sound unit through the Learning While Teaching Project at Northwestern University during the 2017-2018 school year. District PLNs, Twitter, NGSNavigators podcast, and professional reading continue to deepen my understanding of the shifts needed to teach using the three dimensions.
