You have entered the world of exploration, confusion, and just an abundance of fun! Science is a passion of mine and I hope at the end of the year your passion for science has grown just a little, if not more!

My Education and Professional Background

B.S. in Biology at ASU, MS in secondary education at University of phoenix, my second masters in Biology and microbiology at Clemson University. This is my 16th year teaching in the district.

My Educational Philosophy

The pedagogical approach I take to my teaching is hands on based on my student’s needs, strengths, and interests. Getting to know my students is the first way to gain insight on how they learn. For me teaching is full of wonderful challenges, frustrations, and excitements. I strongly believe that all children have the ability to learn and all deserve the opportunity. I love teaching and want my students to see that!
