As a science educator I have the primary ideas of the use individualized learning experiences to enhance education. My goal is to have the learners in my class extremely motivated as they can be. Also make my students think about science like a natural life process they can be develop from a simple experience to a complex one. The process require freedom to allow creativity and think out of the box to improve our surroundings.
I am a Physics teacher, which loves what I do, that likes to develop the concepts and ideas to make my apprentices to enjoy and adore what they have learn. Physics is not an easy task but when the student has an exceptional guide learners can accomplish what other think it is impossible. I believe that the impossible can be possible with supported and science based strategies.

Teaching requires art but also dedication. My job as a teacher is to foster critical thinking and problem-solving strategies that will be accompanying the learner for life. Fulfill your dreams. Deep think, dream big and, climb high!
The marvel sensation of discovering the world will let them reach their full potential. Each child is unique and they have the control to bring their exceptional talents to the world.
I believe that students need high expectations. I just want to provide the way, the quality, the tools and the motivation to build their future, to create the place, to fulfill their dreams while I am building mine. 3D Printing is the alternative of tomorrow. The future is in everyone hands. Just need time to build what is needed.
My students came from a mixture background, full of diversity. They are just human beings. A mixture of race ethnicity, socioeconomic status, nationality, citizenship, gender, orientation, expression, ability and age. For me it is just perfect! I do not judge people for their aspect or beliefs, I rather deal with their knowledge, intelligence and brainpower.
Physics is not an easy task but when the student has an exceptional guide learners can accomplish what other think it is impossible. They can drive their lives. Making the future a better one.
Education is power, students can reach what the maximum power to enlight the life. Learners have the power to change the world. My faith is in the human being and my passion is teaching.
My goal is to make those learners to immerse themselves into Physics, Astronomy, Robotics or Computer Science. It is having a new perspective over content. I am different and that’s why is better not to use diversity to predict the responses or the values. I want to connect diverse people because the value is in the way we connect and interpret the world. By using a variety of methods, respecting each other perspective made the students and myself the professional and individual needed for our community.
Being a teacher has been one of the most rewarding experience in my life. My personal goal for my teaching practice is to ensure my students are motivated and satisfied on what they are learning. Having a LMS brings teaching to a higher level. Please contact me to learn Physics together.
Hello young people it is a pleasure for me to be your Physics teacher. We will share very nice moments and I know that they will be a very special group, motivated and with great expectations. I hope that in my class you will find the resources needed to enrich your knowledge, and facilitate the learning of your Physics class. Fisicaenlinea, will be a place of relief where you can find the documents used in class, share your concerns, needs and above all your knowledge with colleagues. Go ahead, actively participate and experience the 21st century virtual experience.
Online education means that you can learn whatever you want in the pace you need. It is about comfort and manage your schedule; to learn as much as you can. Self-paced systems allow to make progress any time that works for you. Accommodate students with different learning styles. It is not for everyone, just for the best! All online programs will look great on your resume. Learning online is always lower cost because you do not have to move to the University. It is totally worth the effort.
Science has no frontiers thats why the education of this new century requires learners who dare to make a difference. This website reflects the ideas, knowledge and depth that the student of this century prefers. Over the years I have learned to teach by basing experiences on real problems. If you want to read my story you can go here: Science without frontiers.
It is the way of creation of online learning experiences for all learners around the world. This processes results on the acquisition and application of the concepts, knowledge and skills. It is how the experiences are designed, developed and delivered for the levels kinder to college. The instructional designer is the person who develops the methodology and the delivery of the content using a variety of resources.
A revolution in online education is needed to permit connection with each other. Online higher education has many advantages. Traditional education mixed with online education will allow to build networks and alliances no one can imagine. I am capable to provide the learning environment suitable to learners to share their ideas, their problems and their feelings. This is an open door experience that will help students discover the world like never before.
I have the passion to mentor future teachers, they can consult me. I have in my website the resources, direction and quick answers needed to accomplish what NGSS standards require. As a facilitator or instructional designer I can develop the models, the strategies and predict the performance using research based activities to make the new apprentice teacher reach the higher potential needed. As a consultant of some educational projects, learners will find their way to succeed and to accomplish the assignments as well as to have the accountability education requires.
By using the right strategies based on science while having excitement, wonder and joy it will engage students to bring their exceptional talents to the world. I find students can learn in different ways. Please contact me to continue building our network. I want to know about you.
