My Education and Professional Background

I am teaching 8th grade GRIT science this year at Bogle Jr. High School. This is my first year back at BJHS! Previously I taught one year of 8th grade science/biology in Higley, eight years of 7th grade science in Oklahoma, and I started my career here at BJHSteaching 8th grade science for six years. I have my Masters of Arts in Teaching (with a focus on Secondary Science) from Pacific University, and my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Biology from the University of Oregon.

My Educational Philosophy

I firmly believe that every student can learn and have fun while doing it!!! I strive to create a structured atmosphere full of inquiry and active student engagement in order to help my young learners grow as students.
