VII. EDUCATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES:

 Teaching Philosophy:

The teacher’s main role in the classroom is to be a facilitator of learning.  The teacher provides basic concepts, knowledge, and skills, while providing an atmosphere where the student can be intrinsically motivated to develop their own inquiry skills to pursue further knowledge in the field of study, and to learn how to ask the right questions and seek multiple solutions.  Curriculum and lessons should be creativity based, multi-disciplinary and integrated, whenever possible, which will enhance not only learning in a specific discipline, but across disciplines and provide valuable linkages between disciplines.

Descriptions of Education Programs at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory:

Developed or planned the development of integrated education programs for high schools across the U.S.  These programs (Biotechnology Education Program, Global Climate Change Curriculum Development Program, and the Environmental Research, Monitoring and Assessment Education Project) introduced students and teachers to the complexities and impacts of science and technology throughout their high school career.  All of these programs are all based on a model we developed for multi-disciplinary, multi-graded, integrated instruction that can be used in systemic reform efforts.  Each project stresses resource sharing and partnership development that can be used for sustainability and dissemination of the education programs.  Finally, we developed extension/in-service courses for California teachers, which were offered at California State University, Chico and California State University, East Bay.
