 Hello! I have been working at WTS since 2010. This is my seventh year teaching middle school science. 

I believe that students learn best when they feel comfortable, supported, included, and respected. Together, students and I develop plans and practice respectful behavior to ensure all students feel this way each day. 

In class, students have the opportunity to explore hands-on, project-based, and multidisciplinary learning. I strive to build empathy and global thinking skills. I also incorporate health, product development, current events, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) projects into the curriculum. In science class, we regularly engage in the practices of science and engineering, including conducting labs and experiments, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating results. 

I love to stay engaged with the community. I am the girls’ middle school basketball coach, I run a science and sustainability club in the spring for middle school students, and I am apart of the MV Vision Fellowship alumni.

My favorite subject is general science! I especially like studying life science and conducting wildlife research. My favorite place to research is in Madagascar. I spent a summer in Madagascar conducting research on lemurs, chameleons, snakes, geckos, birds, butterflies, and more. I earned a certificate for Tropical Habitat Conservation for my work that specialized in researching lemur behavior. I am passionate about protecting planet Earth and all of the living things that live here. 

In my free time I like to listen to music, play sports, learn about science, and spend time in the great outdoors.
