Riverdale Kingsbridge Academy, Bronx, New York
I teach Earth science at Riverdale Kingsbridge Academy, a public high school in the Bronx. In 2019 received my Masters degree in teaching from the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History. The previous year, I graduated from Lehman College, part of the City University of New York with a B.A. in Earth science. Teaching has been a career change for me. Until a few years ago I worked as an illustrator specializing in educational publishing and the teen magazine market. My first B.A. is in art from Antioch College, back in 1988. I am still interested in art, but my focus is now in using drawing as a way for my students to enhance their observations skills.
