Welcome to C.A.T.S. Science! This year is going to be filled with opportunities to explore our natural world through Geology, Astronomy, Genetics, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. I am a mom to four children, one currently attending high school in Chandler. I have lived the challenges of educating C.A.T.S. as a parent and as a teacher. Teaching is not just a calling, but a passion. I am a lifelong learner who is always working to perfect my skills and grow as a teacher.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from ASU, Summa Cum Laude with ASU's Highly Qualified certifications in middle school science, STEM, and am completing my gifted certification. I've also earned a certificate in Environmental Education. This past summer, I attended the Honeywell Educator's Science Academy, and I can't wait to bring what I learned to my students. Teaching is my second career, having come from a Human Resources background in the Construction and Mining industries.

My Educational Philosophy

I utilize a variety of best teaching practices and methods of classroom management. High expectations, differentiation, student centered teaching, and knowing my student's individual needs form our classroom instruction. Because of my STEM and science background, I implement project/problem based learning to enrich our classroom experiences My primary goal is to help form lifelong learners who are productive citizens of a global community. Students will learn 21st Century Life Skills: Critical Thinking/Doing, Creativity, Collaboration, Cross-cultural Understanding, Communication, Computing, Career and Self-Sufficiency. Good science acts as the platform to launch your student toward responsible citizenry.
