I am a 7th and 8th grade general science teacher in Oakland, California. My favorite subjects to teach are natural science especially when it comes to the ocean and I love taking my students on field trips to witness nature first hand. One of the most memorable teaching moments was sailing on a boat with my students and watching breaching grey whales and spotting marine mammals in the San Francisco Bay. I am excited to learn more about the science of whaling in Melville’s world and bring a new perspective to my own teaching style.
