"My name is Mary and I have been teaching since 1996. My certifications include elementary - all subjects, MS/HS Biology and life sciences, and Visual Arts - all grades. My approach is creative, helping you to find connections with what you are learning, see how relevant each subject is to your life and future, and enjoy everything you study.
