I am honored to teach your child this year. Having raised two strong young women and currently raising an equally strong young man, I appreciate the struggles, concerns and hopes you have for your child. Please know that I value the impact and the role I play in your child's development. I hope I inspire a love of science, as well as a curiosity that leads to more learning. I am "old school" in that I reinforce manners and respect, but I am "new school" in that I try to keep up with current trends and connect with students to keep them engaged and laughing... even if they are laughing AT me!
