"The education of young people in science is at least as important, maybe more so, than the research itself."

I am proud to be a member of the Chandler High School Science Department teaching AP/IB and Honors Chemistry and, more importantly, call myself a Wolf!

My Education and Professional Background

PhD Environmental and Stress Plant Physiology, Professional Science Educator

My Educational Philosophy

Because science is a lot more about asking questions than getting answers, I strive to teach students as I would want to be taught, with enthusiasm in an environment of support and respect. It is my belief that students learn best when they are actively engaged in their learning constructing new, and sometimes more sophisticated, understandings and modeling the unseen.
